Trust, a hard lesson learned. #poems #WritingCommunity #4

Nerds and Nerdettes,

To pick up where we left off yesterday, I thought I’d explain why the school put me on suicide watch. Like I said in my first post, I didn’t hide my writing and showed it to teachers. And when writing in a ‘foreign’ language, it makes sense to go to the teacher of that subject who knows you most, right? Wrong! Not only did she tell on me to the principal and call me suicidal, but she also said it was terrible writing (fair enough). But she didn’t stop there! A few days before I gave it her we got our grades for the oral portion of that quarter, and I got an A, after showing her the poem, I never got better than a C.

What could possibly be that bad?

Time is an illusion,
Faith is just a word,
Fate a way of life,
Life just temporary,
Matters not important,
Feelings just a way to waste the illusion,
Right or wrong just ways to live,
Hope does not exist,
Born into darkness, dying in darkness,
 
The lonely wanderer tries to find a way into light by the feeling called
love,
But yet stays lonely in the darkness behind…..
Weak
Abandoned
Hurt……
 
There is NO way out,
For there is NO way in…..
It just happens,
unexpected and has no meaning,
Because all that happens on earth is temporary and therefore of no matter.

Time is an illusion,
Faith is just a word,
Fate a way of life,
Life just temporary,
Matters not important,
Feelings just a way to waste the illusion,
Right or wrong just ways to live,
Hope does not exist,
Born into darkness, dying in darkness,
 
There is NO way out….
Caught in the darkness of life……
Til you die………!!

This, apparently! Oddly enough, I showed it to two other teachers after that. Both not only praised but encouraged me to keep going. Hell, they’d even come and ask me about it if I went a few weeks without showing them something!

Stay true to yourself!
