Favorite Quote:
"When life gives you one hundred reasons to cry, show life you have one thousand reasons to smile!" -Anonymous

Loyalty can be broken,
Often by a single fault.
Visibly you appear to be fine,
Even though on the inside you hurt.

Apologies are made,
Nothing can change what happened.
Depressed, you move on.

With time unknowing,
Arms in hand, you begin to run,
Run from the enemy.

Almost out of breath
Recalling why it is you are here,
Everything comes to a standstill.

Underneath that smile
No one knows what you’re hiding.
Faking you’re alright,
Angry at the ignorant people around you.
It seems like it couldn’t happen to you,
Reality finally kicking in, you move forward.

This is an acrostic poem I wrote for my second semester AP CA portfolio about love and war, my argument being that they are unfair. Down it says LOVE AND WAR ARE UNFAIR. Hope you like it!
