This poem mostly comprises of my personal feelings that I had to let out, in the form of writing.It would be amazing to get some suggestions on this poem.

I am silent and calm

I wonder how I would be without all those mistakes I made? What would make me, me without all my mistakes and experiences?

I hear the silent murmurs of people gossiping and criticizing others for their originality.

I see myself becoming a better role model for those around me.

I want to become a happy and successful person

I am silent and calm

 

I pretend I don’t care what others think of me but  sometimes I take criticism to heart and it makes me question myself and my actions.

I feel my heart shatter into pieces with all the antagonism coming towards me.

I touch the tattered book, with all my heart’s sorrows poured in it.

I worry that I might not be able to be the responsible sister my family expects me to be.

I cry to see my performance as a student and a sister, lowering.

I am silent and calm

 

I understand that I might not be perfect, but I can still try

I say it’s ok, don’t give up, keep trying

I dream one day I will be who I want to be.

I try to become the best version of myself

I hope that one day, people will know me because of who I am and not because of someone else’s identity

I am silent and calm
