And here I remain

November 23, 2008

Yes, I've always been here.
I stood here in the dark and cold forest even when it was pouring rain
while you left me alone.
I did not change, at all.
I've been here all along screaming in the pure silence;
not only out loud, but in my mind too.
I can't stand to be alone anymore,
but still here I continue to stand.
My existence is invisible to you,
nor is it a significance to you anymore.
With every loud cry of thunder,
my memory goes back to being here with you,
we were there for each other,
every time we needed it,
endless laughing,
and the dreams and goals in which we both carry
and take with us on the long road,
the sky is the limit.
However, I will not end there.
For I will still be standing in the dark and cold forest,
rain pouring around me and lightning shooting at everything,
but me,
for any second, I could just be washed away or struck,
but no, I stay still and firm with high confidence and no support,
hoping for the day you return
and here I remain.

The author's comments:
My name is Angela and I believe that my talent/gift is writing. I not only write poems, but I also write books and want to get one published as soon as I can to let the whole world see. What inspires me to write would be all my english teachers I have ever had and my support from one of my best friends, Samuel. I believe if you set your mind to something, then you can do it. People say the sky is the limit, but why do you have to stop at the sky? Go beyond your understandings, even if it makes no sense. I have had a hard life to live, really I have, but in the end I always find my way back by writing.
