    An opinion is a curious thing. When one asks for your opinion, there may be more than just one simple answer floating around in the jumble of the mind. Yet there is only one to say; it is expected of you. So, with that said, when the opinion is actually blurted out...whose opinion is it? Society has...

    What’s really me? People around me seem to have a grasp At who they really are on the inside. Yet, when I try to imagine who I am... I am lost. There is no “me” In the kind of way others can find themselves. Is it because I have forgotten who I am? Lost within all of the walls I have b...

    Every heart has the protection of walls, Some have strong walls made of brick, Other walls are more similar to those that are wooden, And some have been far too trusting and are practically straw. My walls are commonly brick, Never trusting until they have seen proof That trust would be a wi...

    Every heart starts out with perfection. Upon birth, two slots open in the heart. These let to be filled with love from the child's parents. As life continues, As burdens bear down, Some slots are filled in with nothing but memories, Others with hearts made of lies. Yet, there are constan...

    Someday I'll be where I am meant to be. With time, there must be a plan. Even though the times are rough, It's never going to be okay To give up, To hold out, To not let myself be seen To just smile, Take his hand, And know I'm finally happy. I'm finally happy. ...

    A door creaked open; Thin rays of sunlight snuck in. My heart is safe again; The walls around it are re-built. Now I am able to sit, Happy with where I am again. Today I am able to smile, Thrilled to have learned so much. Yes the first heartbreak Is a shattering event to suffer. Yet it...

    Words create feelings, Feelings create how we present ourselves. Once we are presenting, People get impressions of who we are inside. With those impressions, Friends can be made in even the unlikely places. Upon gaining new friendships, Relations may grow and people learn to smile. Sure, Pl...

    Walls around my heart. Cheesy? Perhaps. True? Completely. My walls have built up, Numerous pains have created them And formed them into the Imposing castle They have become. Monstrous walls, Tall, mean towers, Guards patrolling the perimeter. My walls were not about to come down. ...

    The shimmer of the sun, Tickling the crest of the Earth with Rays of shining gold. They slowly rise above the valley, Perfectly located between Two majestic hills Made of the greenest shrubbery. The sky changes colors, Awakening pastel colors That sneak around the puffy clouds. This ...

    Brick by brick, a wall was made. Then, fist by fist, my wall was compromised. That first time love is found in another person's eyes, One little look, and everything changes around you. My walls were left alone while love kept me open, Those warm eyes made me trust that I would be safe, ...

    With so many emotions, Yet so vacant; With countless feelings, Yet none to share. I am a mess, at times I am an endless confusion. My inner turmoil is As vacant as a dark hole, Yet, as full as a dark hole. Even while I am full, I am endlessly empty. My heart is desperate to Hide, show it...

    There are many ways to be healthy. No matter how much muscle mass you can gain, No matter the way the numbers on the scale Match up with the way you love them to be... You are never truly healthy. Until you let you, just be. Inner turmoil is never a road to being healthy, Even if you are the ...

    Happy, sad, angry; These are all just words. Words cannot truly ever express The inner turmoil inside of a person. But they do their best, After all, Without them we would be lost. Without words to try to describe The current mental state we are in, There would be no chance at comprehen...

    I am not perfect, No one truly is. Yet everyone expects that perfection... The one no one can ever completely find, hold, and obtain. Remarkable, is it not? We spend our lives searching for something unreal. Perfection is like a disease in our minds that forces us to never settle, While...

    There is always a breeze, A gust of wind; if you may. Yet rarely is it taken to notice Due to it's failure at rarity. Kindness is always out there, An everyday occasion in life. Yet very seldom do people notice How much we absolutely need it. A touch, a smell, a whisper around the w...

    Running away from the ones I love, That is my personality. Trying to distance myself from the ones I care for, A mere safety my heart and brain force. Around the ones I love There is pain and suffering Both mental and physical I try to avoid all of the ways I cause pain. From physical vi...

    Thirteen years have come and gone, Countless hours and memories are past, From my shy encounter with students as I started Kindergarden To the shaky steps I took away from my mom's safe hands Into the world of knowledge and people I would soon grow to rely on and trust to get me through th...

    Life is like a snow globe. There are moments of beauty and calm happiness, yet every now and again, things get rather shaken up. It feels like your world is tilting and falling all around you. Yet it always finds its way back to a calmer level. We all long for those moments in our lives and wish tha...

    Throwing that garbage out the window, Careless and ignorant As the world changes around us. Garbage chokes out the ground's fertile life, Man-made structures and creations murder nature, As we sit around and wonder Why is our world falling apart?...

    Closer we became until Suddenly maybe we were too close. We drifted, Talked less and shared fewer thoughts We have gotten so close Yet oh, so far From what both of us so long to have. More than best friends, Less than that, though, too. Our emotions are jumbled, Falling into a mess We try...

    My body has met many surfaces; It has been thrown against the wall, Pushed to the floor, Smashed into the lockers. My mind has met many attacks; It has been sculpted to believe I am worthless, Pushed around and made to self-loath, Smashed into fragmented pieces of what it once was. Bullying ...

    As I am shoved to the wall, Thrown to the floor. Shoved into a locker, Mocked and teased, Hurt both physically and mentally, I stand back up and shake it off. A bully gets no greater joy Than seeing the bullied down. As a victim of bullying, I say stand back up, Stand against the hurt, Ge...
