Silent Tears

"Silent Tears"
I sit at home,
and cry on my own.
Too lonely to speak of,
all alone.

I can't find a way,
to say today,
that I'm so much happier,
than yesterday.

Colors pass by the window.
As I'm on my way to school.
A single sad face,
on the canvas of life.
I always feel like the fool,

But it's not ok,
to say to me,
that tomorrow is,
another day.
So I say.....

Why cant I be her?
Why cant I be,
anything but me?
I can't stand living this way.
I can't take what I see.

All my friends say they know me,
but I know they're scared of what they can't see.
I walk down these halls alone.
When I die, will I still be unknown?

Nobody understands,
the pain I feel.
A broken heart,
that won't ever heal.
And I scream....

Why cant I be someone else?
Why cant I be anything but me?
I can't live this way.
I can't take what I see.

In my dreams I'm someone else,
because I can't stand who I am.
There's not a thing I see to like about me.

So I cry, and wonder why,
no one takes the time,
to stop looking at their lives,
to help me with mine.
No one cares....

Hey liz- I like this poem. I'm a teen to and I can totally relate to it!
Lucian Thompson 05 Dec 2004
Oh, Liz, You break my heart with your beautifully written poem. I know being 14 is so very difficult in these vile days we live in, but I promise you, walk with God and share your pain with Him and He will set you free from your plight. You have brought so much joy to Trish and I, and we love you beyond measure. Your day is breaking forth like a butterfly who has just come from metamorphosis. Fly little one, keep writing and expressing your heart. God will be your protector and shield. We will be your support and encouragement. You are loved!
Trish Thompson 05 Dec 2004
An excellent poem, Liz, and it takes me back to when I was your age, and felt just as you do
You have a real gift for expressing what you feel....keep on writing!
Honey Stone 03 Dec 2004
You have two great qualities: honesty and poeticly expressive. Keep pouring out your thoughts.
