    Hi, um, well by looking at what everyone else has done, it seems I gotta open a new thread for every poem so here's my 2nd poem (my first is called Almost Doesn't Count). This is actually the first poem I ever wrote and I was a mere 13 at the time. Anyway, here goes:


    Life And Death

    Happiness, sadness, excitment and anger,
    These are all emotions I feel no long,
    Life is but a delicate gift,
    And love is what gives it that powerful life,
    I have left this world and entered another,
    I have joined my grandparents and my mother,
    I felt out of place, that I didn't belong,
    I committed a crime which I know was so wrong,
    As I lifted the dagger, tears welled up in my eyes,
    Nobody heard my last pitiful cries,
    Later they found me,
    My pain, my sadness, they could never see,
    Sure I had friends, a boyfriend and love,
    But it was within myself that I never had enough,
    Now that I'm gone,
    My pain is just as strong,
    How I wish they could see,
    That the reason I left is because I wasn't happy with me.

    a mere 13...

    it's sad to think that, at 13, your most pressing thought was of suicide. expressions of sorrow are deeply touching. THANKS FOR SHARING.

    *hope you're happier with self...and your sense of belonging*
