"Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson


I sit here
Anger pouring out of my face
Tears running down my blood-red face.

I'm squeezing my elbows so tightly
That my arms are white.
My eyes the color of ember.

That memory playing over
And over
And over.

Their laughs
Their remarks
Their fingers pointing directly at me.

If I could relive that moment now
My life could be different.
Very different.

But here I sit
Looking out my window into the world
My life ticking on by.

I think hard about my future-
The life that I want to live
And realize
It is nothing like the humiliation
That I'm feeling right now.

I wrote this because I want people to know that in situations when you get embarrassed or angry, you have to move on or it will become your future.

The idea of this poem is really good! I think it could have been better if you either expanded on it just so more emotion comes out. I like how its depressing until the last stanza and it starts a thought that could end up hopeful. Good job! and please read some of my work too =)
