A poem about how I am not ready to let go of my pain in fear I will have nothing left.

I walked blindly into the world

Stupid little girl

To think it be all magical

I know now that wasn’t very practical


This world is a cruel place

Chew you up spit you out

Feels like your just taking up space

Like words on a white board one swipe… erased.


You start to feel the weight of the world on your shoulders

Young but feel older

Every moment feels restrained like your ankles are tied down to boulders

Man if I could just go back to old me I would have told her


Wondering if at times you've made mistakes

You can't wake up this ain't fake

How much more can I take

I feel sometimes like I'm about to break


 I take it out on my loved ones

That when its out I still can't feel the sun

Even though I made it have I even really won?

Maybe I'm just being dumb.


I am broken and though I have the pieces I am not fully put together

This storm I feel I  cannot weather

These burdens have me feeling out of my body light as a feather

Will I be broken forever?


Though I try to smile through the pain

I'm so numb I no longer feel the rain

I can't restart my life this ain't no video game

I'm beginning to feel ashamed


Even though I may be glued back together

You can still see the cracks in my skin like old used leather

I just want to aspire to be better

How can I when pity and I are tethered?


Yes I have a hard time letting go.

For so long I've endured the cold

Even if I decide to make it so.

I fear then I'll have nothing left of me worth to show.



A broken lost girl
