    I am who I was taught to be, I am taught my name given to me, I am taught my race, and I am taught yes and no. I am taught to call these who teach me these things, Mom, Dad, Grandmother, Grandfather etc etc. I am taught their ways, sometimes their faults, and their beliefs. I am...

    Shame...

    This feeling of shame Is so deep within me Am I the one to blame For what I cannot be The want is so deep That it kills me slowly What can I do Because I feel lonely The person I should be Is slowly fading away I'm drowning in this pain And its me that I betray

    My Poem 'Good Enough'

    Am i not good enough for you? What else do i have to prove? You've taken my heart, Torn it apart, And i cant take anymore, Turned away, And shunned me, Built me up then broke me down, Am i not good enough? I try very hard to be polite, To do all right, And listen to my elders...

    Within

    The Spirit of Truth says to me, Show me darkness and I will be your light. Show me your weakness and I will be your strength. Show me your wrongs and I will show you right. Show me your blindness and I will give you sight. There is nothing you can't achieve if you believe in Me...

    What It'S Like

    Do you know what its like, To hold on to someone elses life, Praying they will be okay, But knowing here comes the day, They're suffering, They're hurting, And you feel alone, When the day comes, That they go home, Do you know what it's like, To cry and cry and cry, To cry your...

    Passionate About Poetry

    I love poetry too!! What do you think of this one: Whispers In the Dark By Annalyn Reed Whispers in the dark at night, that haunt us in our dreams, ones that enter softly, in ghostlike silver beams. Whispers in our minds, scream silently inside, won't matter if we scream or cry...

    I Love Poems, Reading And Writing Them.

    For me writing poems is all about writing my experiences and not just that but also writing to relate to other's experiences. So not all poems are about me but also for others.

    Love

    Love shows its way in many ways, Love can be two doves, Love can be a kiss, Love can be a hug It can be a simple smile, It is loyalty, It is trust, It is without any lust, Love can be of any way, Love can hurt, But love can teach, Love can seem wrong, What do u think?

    "No Escape" Writen By Ashley Houghton

    She lays there with her dying screams, but no one will hear. Her body freezes even as I watch her make checkmarks on those walls, her beautiful moans fill this room with warmth as well as sorrow. The cry she makes; she knows that she’s next. An unfamiliar chilly feeling...

    She Waited For Too Long

    She's no longer the girl who waited. Tears ran out, the memory faded. She tried to hold on but he was long gone. It slips like sand through her fingers. Forever the feeling lingers. He touched her heart, mind and soul. That love forever her goal. Never to be reached again...
