Not being able to speak my

Wanting to go far away and never look back.


On the inside I’m sad

I want to sit down in front
of a mirror

In the dark ,


No interruptions

No one trying to make me happy.


I’m confused because I don’t know who I am,

I want to be me ,

Say how I feel

But I keep my feelings in a glass bottle.


I’m happy because I know people love me

I have inner peace

Under the confusion, and sadness.

One day making a difference will be part of my daily routine.

I will smile everyday , and be me.

Waiting ,

For the day I can stand up

And be understood,


And know exactly what’s going on.

This is a really good poem! I can really relate to everything the person is feeling. I am currently going through this and just reading this poem gives me a sense of hope. Thanks for writing this! Good job! :)
