Favorite Quote:
I was much too far out all my life / And not waving but drowning


I am
Scared,
For the change to come-
Like the seeds of a dandelion getting thrown
Regrowing in a new place.

I am
Falling apart,
At the thought of a million new faces-
Like an old letter
Stashed at the bottom of a drawer.

I am
Hiding,
Afraid to face a world I will soon leave-
Like the caterpillar sheltered away
Before it alters its life forever.

I am
Wincing,
At the pain that has become routine-
Like a gambler never folding
Never facing an addiction.

Change: The only thing as sure as tomorrows sunrise.

I will be
Okay.
Like I always have been.
Like I always will be.


The author's comments:
I personally wrote this about moving a lot, but it can be taken an way for any person - the underlying message is how it feels when facing a drastic change.

well that was the point im glad my poem properly conveyed my emotion and made at least one of my readers feel my emotion while writing it / feel their own emotion because of it

If you treat me like a princess, I'll treat you like a prince.
If you treat me like a game, I'll show you how it's played.

It seems really depressing, I mean, no offense intended, it's really great and I know how you feel, I moved across the country last year, but it makes me want to cry.

We wouldn't ask a rose that grew from the concrete for having damaged petals; in turn we'd all celebrate its tenacity, we'd all love tz will to reach the sun well we are the roses n these are my damaged petals don't ask me why thank God and ask me how

Good piece, I really like it and I totally love the last stanza that's my favourite coz many times I find myself saying that! It's relatable and that means a tonne..

"Everything is okay in the end,
if its not okay it's not the end."
"Be who you are and say how you feel because if someone matters they dont mind and if someone minds they dont matter"
"If God brings you to it he will bring you through it!"

I like the structure and how this poem kind of tells a story and how they can get through it like they always do.

That's AWESOME. I like the form and word choices. And I like the ending.

"I will be okay. Like i always have been. Like I always will." That's awesome. I like optimism at the end of almost anything. Very nice. 5/5
