basically my first random piece of writing not really a story, not really a poem. Just a way for me to express myself through words.

It feels like I’ve been placed in a room and the only words that can get through the walls are words of disappointment or anger. As if the only things I’m allowed to hear are anything that will discourage me from life, everything I do is never good enough the voices make sure of that. The confusing thing is that the voices are coming from people I love and respect, people who only want the best for me but the voices feel far from comforting. Anyway back to the walls, they’re just covered in disappointed portraits staring at me, their eyes follow me wherever I go in the room and they appear to be getting closer. I can see the door in the corner but anytime I try to approach, the words get louder and louder and so I end up retreating, backing away to make it stop. I know I can escape but there’s something holding me back that even I can’t see. The whispering walls only stop talking if someone else enters the room, then the portraits turn away and the room becomes normal again, the door is unlocked I can see outside, I can smile, laugh, hide the sad. But then they leave and all of a sudden the whispering starts again the portraits begin to berate me for ever being given the chance to look outside. I try to shout back but the voices hold the power over me, they are the ones that call the shots. How can I fight against people I’m obligated to listen to, who’s rules I have to follow? It doesn’t seem fair but then what in life ever is at this point.
