"I cannot change the world, but I can change myself. I cannot change the people, but I can inspire the people. I cannot change mankind, but I can make a difference."

He was there

The moon clouded over me and made my soul unravel

I wanted the nerve to tell him but my voice was in despair

He loved that beauty, not me so my hopes hung in the air

He was there

In the back the crickets sang and urged me on

The wolf howled and taunted me no

But in my mind, my love was on the line, ambition paralleled and intertwined

He was there

I felt the pace and the beat

I had to do it now...or consider it defeat

The metronome had its time

I told him aloud with my own rhyme

I looked

He was there

I felt the joy through my tears

He had heard me, not my fears

A moment passed, nothing less

He was there, and I had finally confessed

The author's comments:

I wrote this poem back when I was around 11 years old. At the time -- I was experiencing one of the hardest transitions in my teenage life. Poetry was my escape from reality, and I hope it would be yours too.
