Woke up this morning.
Having great confidence in myself.
Ready to face anything I can meet up on my way.
All of a sudden I got lost in darkness.
The world I knew "Where Is It?!"
Walked around searching for that fragment of light.
Hatred and anger.
I saw it in their eyes.
Broken hearts.
I heard them falling apart.
Tears drops falling off their cheeks.
Where is the moment we needed the most?!
Where is Love and Carring?!
Prayed to God:
"Take me back to where I can find hope and feel love!"
So much Pain but no one cares.
A simple teenage girl:
"Do I have the POWER to Make a Difference?!"

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

How often I've felt like this! I still think to myself, 'Do I have the power to mae a difference?" We do, it's just sometimes we feel like we don't. I love it, TheComet! So wonderful, just like you are! ^_^ thank you, for sharing this!

This poem is so powerful! It discribes days I often have, where the day starts out great, then crumbles. I never thought about making a difference myself. It is a great way to change the day around. I also love the part with the prayer to God to take you back. It reminds me of my poem My Haunting Joy! I guess we read each other's minds XD

Love the way you start out like "Yeah today is my day" and then you end as if the world is falling apart before your eyes. It was interesting and flowed really well.  Great job!! :)
