“True Loss”

I've known you for a few years now,
and those years were better because of you.
You said there was always a chance you'd go back to Arizona,
but I never thought much about it.
I just wanted you to always be here with me,
because you were such a good friend to me.
I never even considered the possibility of you
not being here with me.
I guess I took you for granted,
and I'm so sorry for that.

You always knew what to do,
When I needed you.
You always knew how to make me laugh.
I have never laughed as hard at the lunch table
as I did when you were there beside me.

There weren't many days you weren't there with me.
And it's hard walking in the halls without you.
And not many people got to see you the way I did.

I know a couple years ago,
We used to talk about how two complete opposites
Could be such good friends.
I know how,
now.
It's because of how great you truly are.

I'll never forget all the jokes you told.
Or when we made commercials
in eighth grade,
and we were way off task
and you were singing.
And all the laughs we shared.
How many times you said you were tired.
And everything else about you.

I hope you prosper and succeed in life,
and go on to be the best you can be,
and I know in my heart,
You will do everything you want.

And someday,
hopefully soon,
we WILL see each other
again.

“Please Stop Judging”

Judgment is harsh
It kills people.
Not just them,
but their friends and families
hurt on the inside too.

Why can't people just let others be?
Whether it's the color of their skin,
Who they're in love with,
The people they hang out with.
Why can't people understand?

My friends get judged all the time.
They try to ignore it,
But it gets worse by the day.
It's too hard for them to go on,
But I keep telling them
Everything will be okay.
But will it?

Don't people around me remember where we live?
It's America, people.
And Everyone
Has the Right
To Believe
And Say
Whatever they Please.

So please,
Stop
the
Judging.

“Let it Go”

Being mad at people
is not a good thing at all.
I can understand
why you feel that way.
Sometimes I just want to hide out
somewhere
just for a little while by
myself
because it feels like no one
understands me
and how I feel.

But you can’t go on like that
forever.
You have to just let it go.
Whatever made you feel
so hateful,
so mad -
just let it pass.

You can’t let things get to you.
I know sometimes
people can get really mad all of a sudden,
but still,
you can’t just start hating people.

You can ignore people,
but if you’re mad at them,
no matter what they did,
it doesn’t make you look
like a good person.
It makes the other person or people
look like they’re better than you.
Especially if others don’t really know what’s going on.

So just let it go.
And be free from your hatred.

"My Memories"


I know sometimes,
I don’t think I remember anything.
Then other times,
I sit down,
and think about
things I’ve done,
in the past
and what I’m about to do
in the future.

My memories remind me of who I am.
Although,
at this point,
I’m still not all that sure about what makes me
me.

I remember the fun days at Sarah’s.
The unreal lunches with Joey and Brett.
And laughing until I nearly choke
on the green vegetable
I’d be eating.
The days when I went to Central.
When I first started going to Kingfield.
And then, of course,
the first half of high school.

Every day I get more
memories.
Some good, that I hope I’ll always remember,
And some bad, that I’d really like to forget.

But I can’t decide what
I remember,
And I can’t
Choose what to forget.
I just get
to think about certain memories –
That are stuck in my head.

"Mine and Sarah's Friendship"


Our friendship
means the world
to me.
From the first day of kindergarten
when I sat with you on the bus
to now, when we sit together in all
of the classes we have together.

Some people,
older people,
have said
we’re going to
split up.
And I lost track
of how many times
we’ve said
we will
always be friends.

Some people,
and
you and I
both know I’m not
making this up,
have even admitted to
being jealous
because they haven’t
found a friendship
like ours.

We’ve taken our twists and turns
and there have definitely been some bumps
along the way,
but we’ve always stayed friends.

High school has brought us
together, even more,
if that’s possible,
and just know,
I’ll never find a better
best friend
than you.
But, don’t worry-
I’m not even thinking about
trying to.

"Regrets"


There aren’t many
things that I
regret.

However,
every once in a while
I do something
without thinking.
Something so stupid
I can’t wait until it’s over.
The humiliation,
the punishment.
I just want the days to pass
so that I can forget it.

Maybe it’ll only take a day.
Or maybe it will be a week.
A month.
A year.
Who knows?
I just want the time to pass.
I want to live happily.
And not feel like I have a ton
of weight
on my shoulders.
I just want to be happy.

And when I have regrets,
I have no one to blame but myself.
Yet, when someone yells at me
and I get in trouble
for what I’ve done,
all I do is blame them.
But really, it’s all on me.

So, you see?
I try not to have too many regrets.
Because I hate blaming
people for things they didn’t do.
Especially when it’s my fault.
And I hate being mad at people,
and holding grudges,
because it’s not right
to make someone else take the blame
for things that I did.

"Who I Really Am"


Some people don’t really know me
at all.
Others probably know me better
than I know myself.
Such as my three best friends.
I still question who I am,
why I do the things I do,
and why I sometimes let others
make decisions for me.
I wonder about who I will become.
I try my best.
Some people just assume that I’m really smart,
and that I’ll easily get good grades.
But that’s not how it works.
I have to try really hard
to do good in school.
And sometimes I think about
what it would be like if I didn’t care about school.
And then I always think about
how I need to excel in school
so that I can get into a good college.
That’s why I have to try so hard in school.
I get disappointed when I do badly,
for obvious reasons.
Some people probably think it’s stupid
how I try so hard,
but I just tell myself
how I’ll thrive in life, and they’ll be stuck
at some minimum wage job,
wishing they were more like me.
At least, I hope, I can do well.

And then, there’s another side of me.
Some people are surprised when I don’t
do something right.
But honestly, no one is perfect.
Not even Barbie dolls,
mainly since their heads pop off easily.

Then there’s another part of me
that tries not to care what people think of me.
I care what my family thinks of me, for the most part.
And teachers too.
But when it comes to others,
I couldn’t care less.
All I want is to keep my grades up,
reach out and touch the stars,
have crazy dreams come true,
and be successful in life.

And I know that if I keep trying,
even harder than I am right now,
I will have a great life.
And I’ll eventually learn who I really am.
At least, someday.
Hopefully.

1. Great poem.
2. My idea is to make an anthology of the best poems on this group's discussions, and hopefully get them published! I would need everybody's permission first, though.

"Staying Strong"


I know how it feels
to have a broken heart.
It feels like
someone ripped your heart out
with their bare hands,
and it’s slowly killing you.
Or maybe that I’m glass,
and my crush just dropped me
and I broke into a million tiny shards.
Like I was a flight of stairs,
getting stomped on.
Over
and
over
again.

I also know how it feels
to break someone else’s heart;
like I was breaking my heart too.
As if my always dancing heart
just chose not to dance to my favorite song
and it stopped singing along with the music.


And I know how sometimes you
just really want to get out of
a relationship,
but when it comes to actually breaking up
with your girlfriend or boyfriend,
it’s still hard.
But it means that you’re strong.
Strong enough
to let go of
that person,
who at one time
you thought could be the one.

And don’t give up on love,
because someday,
you will find
the one.
And everything you have ever done
will feel like it was worth it.

"Don't Ignore Her"


When a girl lets you go
that doesn't mean she doesn't want to
be your friend anymore.

Sometimes she just wants to
go back to what you had.

So when you ignore her
and make her feel upset
whenever she sees you
it just makes her even more emotional
and she'll just realize how glad she is
that the relationship ended.

Because when guys act like that
it just makes them seem really immature.

Taylor | 160 comments Mod
It's not about you...it's about someone that's ignoring me...

"Strong Enough"


Sometimes you break up with someone
because you get sick of them.
Or maybe it’s the opposite.
It could be
that you have nothing in common
and you don’t see any reason in staying together,
he started hanging around other girls,
he stopped talking to you,
or maybe you just fell out of love.

And, sometimes, it’s good
that you broke up with him.
Maybe it was for the best.
Even if you can’t stop thinking about him
and what could have been
and that you miss him
and you wish he would still talk to you
instead of just plain ignoring you.

But, no matter what happens
just remember that you were
strong enough
to let him go.

And just use your eyes,
not for crying over him,
but for searching for someone better,
who will treat you the way
you deserve
to be treated,
and who will love you
until the end,
unconditionally,
the same way you love him.
