Favorite Quote:
“Verweilung, auch am Verstrautesten nicht, ist uns gegeben.” --Rainer Maria Rilke (“We are not allowed to linger, even with what is most intimate.")


Sick of being different,

Even from the different people.

When will my time come

to be "normal"?



Tired of being strong,

Being the one who has to hurt.

When will my turn come

to be the broken one?



Scared of being sensitive,

Opening my heart to people.

When will my day come

for me to be safe?


The author's comments:
Sometimes in your life things just fall apart, and for me, I've always had to be the mature one when times like those come around. I wrote this poem after I was rejected by this guy I really liked, but he wasn't able to be open about our relationship. I hope people will read this and realize that they aren't alone, and you don't always have to be the strong one. Sometimes, you need to be weak.
