About the Poem

In life, we are faced with losing our first loves and are best friends. We have to face the pain of losing our loved-ones to death. We live with our regrets of the mistakes we make in life.

How can you love and trust again when you have been hurt over and over again at a young age. How do you get past all this pain. This is reality.

Reality

Death, departure, walk away, walk out
Should I or should I not pout

Family and friends
Lovers and one-night stands

I have loved, lost and lived
How do I trust, how do I love again

I should move on, it's all in my past
But my pain remains, continues and lasts

This pain lingers in my heart, mind and soul
Damn it - why is this world so cold

How can I have faith in God and family
When people I love are taken from me

Where can I find true and loyal friends
I'm sick of the lies, fights and revenge

Hurt continuously, hurt at a young age
How do I love again with all of my rage

How do I get past all of this, show me a sign
So I can leave my sadness, pain and crying behind

Phylicia
I love this poem. It really says exactly how I feel and with such emotion in the words. With everything I have been through it is just so hard to move on from the pain and the past, because no matter how long your life goes on the pain is still present in your mind and your heart. I have not read a poem before that I could relate to as much as this one. Keep writing!
Tamara
what can i say, you said it all, loud and true. it's actually scary to think of how much this poem related to me, and others. you thinks it's only you, but this proves that others feel it too. this poem is touching and truely amazing.
marcie

I cant tell you to let go of ur pain, I wont. It isnt fair. Bt to love yet again, even in the midst of all of ur rage will show that ur still humam, no matter what they say. Friends are hard to find and keep. Bt I'll be ur friend! And u cant beat an internet friendship, cause theres just sooooo much looooovvvveee!

This is an amazing poem. I resintly Lost a close friend to me. It's been over two months and I still can't seem to let go. While all my other friends seem so fine laughing at school but then theres me with this fake face,fake smile,fake laugh. This poem exsplains how I feel so perfect. Who ever wrote this peom truly know's the hurt of a lost friend.
Tammie
this poem really hit me hard. it explained the way i felt inside i am a 32 year old mother that has 4 children. on july 15,2003 i lost my little girl in a freak accident. prior to that i was in a very abusive relationship,and the poem is so strong it really pin pointed how people that you think are your friends are not. the world is cold,no matter what you try to do.

I really loved this poem, because when I read it, it brought tears to my eyes, because this is exactly how I feel in life right now and this is what I am going through. No one cares for me and no one loves me that is why this poem touched me and my heart when I read it.

Really good poem
a troubled girl
i like the poem it touches me so much. the question WHY? a disastrous question that could be ask with regrets or none. i just cant understand why we discern SUFFERINGS and PAIN that really wounds our heart
melanie

Melissa
I thought this poem really brought out ur inner emotions and i really feel tht most ppl go through the same stuff in their lives this really caught me becuz im dealing with a very sick dad and i love him so much and hes gunna passaway soon and ur poem just is so real and true tht i know exactly how u felt when u wrote it. and its true ppl do feel like when they love somthing somuch they tend to lose it. its nutts but ne ways keep up ur poetry its realy well explained. *Melissa*
jessica
i think that this poem describes some of my feelings that im going through right now. it shows that the author is confused and hurt, and i too, am the same way. thank you for the insperation that this poem gave to me because i now know that i am not alone with the emotions that i have.

Asuzena
wow if only the whole entire world can hear this, the poem was great i loved it and i can hear it calling me i want to say thanks for this poem it really got to me
shadow
this was an awesome poem that only someone talented,skilled or just plain passionete could have written. in most poems ppl write about how rainbows look preety and how much beauty it gives to the sky. but it's nice to know that someone out there recognizes pain and knows how to put it in words it takes a great mind to put real human emotions into poems and it just radiates to everyone that feels the same way so u should feel real achievement that u wrote something that a 13 year old girl relates too(me!).
emma
well wat can i say, a poet writter myself, i've never experienced such emotion in a poem i have come across it makes you think of life and how people can hurt you and give you so much pain. i felt that pain with the poem, i hope others did too.
cecilia
Your poem describes what alot of young kids feel today . i really like it b/c its what i felt these past few years of my life. with all the pain giving up, the drama i had with old friends. you put into words feelings i couldnt express to any one b/c no1 would understand.

THIS POEM SUMS UP ALOT OF WHAT WE GO THROUGH IN LIFE. AN CONTINUE TO GO THROUGH. BY YOU WRITING IT BEGAINS YOUR HEALING. THANK-YOU
Ann
This poem. touched me because I can relate to it. I'm walked on by all my friends but i'm too submissive to do anything about it. My one flaw is that I talk to other people about it and tell them things I shouldn't. I get myself in trouble and I can't get out. I'm currently in Depression and just seem to be going further. Reality. is something so surreal and there's hardly any good things anymore. I feel the same way. ~Ann S.

This poem was great many people say "I can relate to this poem" but they really don't know how your life is when you express it in a poem. I lost my uncle, cousin, brother, and best guy friend. all within a yr of each other. It's hard to move on I havent and I never will. Now I'm stuck in this life. that I dont know how to get out of. Thanks for making me see that I'm not feeling this pain alone! *I send my best wishes to you*

I can't believe you took the words right out of my mouth. Through your poetry, you spoke the words that I have been trying to speak myself. Life is so hard when you seem to be losing the very ones that are most important to you. I know for a fact, because as I read the poem I cried. Next week I am losing someone else that means alot to me. Does the pain ever end? Becuae of poems such as yours, people may find the strength to keep going. Because of you, I will!

Kourtney
This poem meant a lot to me I was beaten and betrayed by many people in my childhood. Mainly begginning teen years. This poem made me feel that I was not alone with being hurt when I was young and trying to trust and love when you where hurt at a young age was very hard. This poem touched me because it is very similiar to what I have gone to. It actually brightened my day.
