A glass of water

It's a coomon analagy

Half full of half empty

It determines your personality


Some people are optomistic 

some people are not

but some people's cups

Don't have a single drop


Silence and pain 

live on the same street

they really do, 

trust me, you will see


people who are raped,

bullied, and beaten

they sit by their lonesome

now you are seeing


people who are hurt 

they are silent

because they are living

in defiance


so tell me now 

half full or half empty

does it really mater

or is pain just a common enemy

My name is Abigail. I am 14 years old and I love to write. There were several things that inspied this peice. The main thing that inspired me was simply the world around me. Many people are very blessed but do not realize it and I really wanted people to see that.
