These are the girls I want to be
These are the girls I am not.
I want to be
I am not
pounds in brain
It hurts
It hurts
If I am not worthless
why dose it feel like
like
like the world just doesn’t want me
If I am ok
why dose it feel like I’m carrying the weight
the crushing breaking hurting weight
of everything
everything
I wish I was
I was not
It feels like
like
like I was just a star a star so far far away
light years
that my glimmer has gone out
a long time ago
but
no one got around to noticing
please
please
please
I need you to notice.

I think people forget that humans are animals too.

You did a very well job keeping the emotion going. It seems to be a very personal poem which i'm guessing is why you were able to so accurately present the emotion and attitude a person would have in such conflict. Bravo

"It's a saying they have, that a man has a false heart in his mouth for the world to see, another in his breast to show to his special friends and his family, and the real one, the true one, the secret one, which is never known to anyone except to himself alone, hidden only God knows where."
-James Clavell, "Shogun"

I actually like that repetition a lot, I think it adds a sort of realism, in that it reflects how we really talk when we're trying to put a finger on our emotions.  Very nice job!

This poem was beautiful! I love the emotion that flowed through the poem. It was a bit confusing, though. Maybe, you can divide your poem into stanzas and get rid of some of the repeated words. Other than that, the poem as a whole is amazing! I loved it! Great job!=)

Here you go!:

I like the message this carries. I also like how it reads like song lyrics! The only thing that needs work is some grammar, and a few confusing lines. Try to maintain a consistent voice and flow.
