My favorite quote is when Christopher Robin said to Pooh "Promise my you'll always remember, you are braver than you believe, stronger than you feel, and smarter than you think."


My house
used to be a
War Zone
my parents
shot
bullets of words
phrases,
and
cursings
at each other
but
just like
rubber and glue
the shots
bounced off
each other
and stuck
the small
girl
hidden
in her closet
fearing for her life
My house
used to be a
War Zone
Where no one
was safe
Where no one
could hide
Where no one
wants to be
but now
the war
is nothing more
than an ugly scar


The author's comments:
I wrote this poem in memory of the times my parents fought all the time. I remember hiding in my closet crying. I just want people to realize that everyone has a dark life, even that girl who is always happy and bright.
