"Writing doesn’t mean deciding to sit still all of your life and think. Ideas come from living and experiencing life, and then stepping back to think." -Shayla

You know in your heart:
They’re right.
But pride lets you think:
They’re wrong.

You hold onto what is good,
But your confidence,
Dwindles out acceptance,
To their words.

They talk and you listen;
And nod respectfully.
But you just think,
Of what could’ve gone wrong.

They tell you they’re,
“Dealing” with you.
You wonder if it even,
Actually hurt who they say it did.

They stand superior,
Separating you from,
The one you are,
Trying to mentally talk to.

You think of who you are,
Compared to how they,
Will now forever,
Think you are.

You pray for the other,
You pray for yourself,
You pray for them,
But not for who was “hurt”.

They take it seriously but seem,
Nonchalant, as if it happens all the time.
You don’t want to be seen as just another.
And you wont.

This poem was written about a girl in a....situation. She and one of her best friends gets into...big trouble, and it's really unlike them, and basically these are her thoughts during it all, and how she sees the situation.
