I had dreamed I was missing;
You were so scared
But no one would listen,
cause no one else cared;
After my dreaming, I woke with this fear;
What am I leaving, when I'm done here?
So if you're asking me, I want you to know

When my time comes, forget the wrong that I've done;
Help me leave behind some reason to be missed

Don't resent me;
And when you're feeling empty, keep me in your memory;
Leave out all the rest;

Don't be afraid of taking my beating;
I'm strong on the surface, not all the way through;
I've never been perfect, but neither have you;
So if you're asking me I want you to know

When my time comes, forget the wrong that I've done;
Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed

Don't resent me and when you're feeling empty, keep me in your memory
Leave out all the rest

Forgetting all the hurt inside you learned to hide so well;
Pretending, someone else can come save me from myself;
I can't be who you are

When my time comes, forget the wrong that I've done;
Help me leave behind some reasons to be missed

Don't resent me and when you're feeling empty, keep me in your memory;
Leave Out all the Rest, leave out all the rest;

"To me, Fearless is not the absense of fear. It's not being completely unafraid. To me, Fearless is having fears. Fearless is having doubts. Lots of them. To me, Fearless is living in spite of those things that scare you to death."
— Taylor Swift

I luv it...as usual.

first of all, this poem is not bad at all. I read your comment about needing the feedback and must tell you to be confident in your work or you won't go anywhere.

second- the only thing I would change is the way you break up your lines, from a visual standpoint. Keep writing
