    I think back to when I was a kid
    I never thought I’d go through the things I did
    I grew to become angry and spiteful
    Sometimes even confusing it for being insightful
    And I knew I was justified if I was wrong.
    They did the same thing to me all day long.
    When you’re so hurt and so cold.
    Ain’t too much that’s gonna stop you from being bold
    If you hurt me, then I’ma hurt you
    It sounds childish but that’s what I went through
    In the daytime I was full of fright.
    So all I could ever do was long for the night.
    Everything was the opposite of how I had envisioned it.
    Wondering if I really had a friend.
    Sometimes my eyes were doughnuts when they’re glazed.
    Constantly contemplating how life is gonna be towards its end.
    But its okay.
    Its gone away.
    What can I say.
    There just had to be a better way.

    Anger, even when it's justified, can eat away at you causing further hurt. Peace can be what's better for us all in the long run, introspective write.

    Beneath what some would perceive hopeless
    I see a poet clinging to hope here!

    This two part series is so naked!!!
    Your soul shines here
    Lots of potential comes when you recognize the mistakes
    And refuse to repeat them..

    This work is so raw
    I love the way your style shined here
    I'm satified!


    PEACE AND LOVE

    twision - It seems like you've figured out what I was thinking when I wrote
    this one. I was trying to express why its hard to move on from a
    hopeless time in my life.

    triniti424 - Don't worry, I believe you. Nice to hear from you again.

    Khasm13 - You're right. I feel like I'm in the process of learning that lesson.

    watzinaname - In the grand scheme of things, you are certainly correct.

    $$RICH$$ - I can only hope you're right, but its up to me.
