A chain is no stronger than its weakest link
And life is after all a chain.
So what say I’ll no longer rethink
I will cease to refrain.

I’m tired of being the quiet one
But it’s vital that you stay
Because when one whose always quiet talks,
They have something important to say.

I’m not as smart as you think I am
I’m just a lot more mature.
I think about things that never pass your mind
That, I can assure.

Don’t label me as ‘Too Smart or Shy”
With your Superficiality
If you really see more than what meets the eye
You’d see right into my originality.

From now on out I’ll do things my way
The idea has been long due
I’ll be stronger after today
When tomorrow brings the new.

I don’t care what I’ll have to do
To get my opinion crossed.
Giving up, NO. I refuse
That’d be a major loss.

I refuse to be ignored
I’ve had just about enough.
And if you don’t like me anymore,
Well, sorry. That’s tough.

What inspired this piece was the fact that everyone is always talking for me. That I am overlooked too often, and I'm sick of it. I'm breaking out of my comfort zone.

"What, do you really think I was
strong enough to handle it?
If you did, then sweetie, you
don't know me at all.
These "smiles" are fake.
Just another lie people bought.
You will never know the disaster
that's behind them." -Anonymous

You are amazing (: I really enjoyed reading this poem, I understand what you're going through. I used to be that quiet one no one really notices, but then people started making false accuratations about me so I had to speak up. Thanks for sharing this with me. Keep writing !
