Everything happens for a reason.

My heart isn't broken
I'm not dying inside
My soul isn't crushed
And I still haven't cried
If you thought your goodbye
would shatter my world
Maybe now you'll remember
I'm just not that girl

When I wrote this, it wasn't because I actually felt this way. In fact, I WAS hurting. Writing this poem though was more to convince myself to stop hurting.

I like your brief, rhythmic style; it packs a very powerful punch.  Keep up the good work!

I love this... it's short but really well-written and the flow of the rhyme is great.
