My face in despair

but you cannot tell.

Is it because I hide it really well?

Or you simply do not care?

Why can't you see

the pain that I suffer?

This war that I face 

its getting tougher

All these confusions

All these delusions

delusions of me in a different world

as a different person

Oh how i wish to be someone else

Someone who is not a book on the shelf

But still im just the same old girl


A mess

Stressed little girl

The girl whose face is still in despair

But I guess no one can ever really tell

Maybe thats why I hide it really well,

Because I know that no one really cares.

I really like your poem! You're a great writer! Unfortunately, I can relate to the feelings you reveal in the poem. I get really overwhelmed sometimes and feel like no one understands me and knows what I'm going through. But then I remember that there IS someone who knows and understands and cares. God does. He/she loves us all unconditionally no matter how broken and dysfunctional and unimportant we feel. I don't know what you'll think of me for saying this. But God is what makes my life worth it and gives me hope when I feel like I can't take this life any more. God knows what you're going through whether you're ready to acknowledge it or not, and God cares about you and loves you more than you could ever imagine! So don't give up, and keep on writing!!
