poetry is a diary written out loud

memories and pain
thinking life was a game
pure pressuse and stress
i lived like i was fearless
conversations were the same
i was the only one who felt shame
my friends all let them selves go
but i walked away and said no
now there known as the stoners
and im known as the loner
it started with memories and pain
thinking life was a game
i wasnt always so smart
and they got me to start
with pure pressure and stress
when i lived like i was fearless
i knew life was worth more
then being a teen whore
im glad i used the brain that god gave me
and finally walked away freely
though damage was still done
im proud of who ive become
but i fear that my old friends
are closing in on the end
because there known as the stoners but i no longer a loner
im the girl that got stronger
and a little girl no longer

The author's comments:
this poem is pretty much talking about how much pure pressure you have put on you when your a teenager. yes people can say oh its easy, just say no and walk away. it is not that easy. the people that pressure you are the people you though you knew the most. you want to fit in, be one of the gang. i am a pretty good kid and im not going to lie and say i was able to just walk away because i wasnt. i got pulled into all that bad stuff. i saw what it did to people but somehow i thought it wouldnt happen to me. i met the love of my life and he helped me realize that i was a better person than that. hes someone that is not only a true friend but someone that actually cares. i thank god i had someone stronger than most people to get me on the right path
