I wrote this when I was a teen maybe 14 or 15

People on the left,
People on the right.
Who is it I am tonight?

I am not here nor there
Am i anywhere?

Do they see me,
Do i fight,
Who is it I play tonight?

Seeking something, not sure what
What have I done but watch the clock

Now you see me, now you dont
Where have i gone? I surely dont know

My head starts to spin,
Then starts my yelling,
No one understands the hell I am suffering

What brought me here
I dont know
It always rains wherever I go

There is tomorrow, but like yesterday
All rolled in one, just another day

I am not hellbound, im already there
Nothing left inside, but a little bit of air

It changes so much i cant get in touch
As time passes by I stand with my crutch

The rage keeps burning,
My mind keeps hurting,
Caught in a whirlwind
Just turning and turning

I like your peom Angel. It is very much thought and true to real life. It is truly inspiring. It shows a lot of the things that go through the mind and how life comes at us in one way or another. Life must go on.

This is beautifully tragic. You write well, so if you wrote this when you were 14 or 15, how old are these, then?
