Poem by Shadow Summit
I am not who you remember
I am no carefree child
I have struggles you will never know
Secrets rule my past and future
You are just as I remember
You haven’t changed
You layer walls of defenses
You always pretend you’re ‘Okay’
I live alone in this world
I used to seek people for help
People only pretend they understand
In the end they always leave me
You are wonderful and precious
You have dreams you’ve hidden deep
Your walls, they trap you
Bring them down and you will fly
I am afraid
I am hurt
I want to scream
I will remain silent
You are full of doubts
You can’t do it alone
I will not crash through your walls
I will dismantle them slowly and gently
I feel my defenses weaken
I try building more
I put the mortar and bricks away
You are precious
You are unique
You are loved
You are free!

Hello there everyone!
So today I was waiting in the car for the library to open, and I had my ipod on shuffle. The latest original song by Janet Devlin ‘Nothing Lost Something Found’ came on and my little grey cells (as Agatha Christie’s ‘Hercule Poirot’ says) started working. I just seemed to get inspired all of a sudden so I grabbed a pencil and random flyer from my back seat and wrote this.
I have dealt with loneliness in the past and still struggle in the present. However, I have some great friends that I realized will always be there for me, even though we each get busy. It’s easy to forget people or assume that they aren’t feeling lonely themselves.
So, if you haven’t seen a friend in a long time, send them a hand-written letter, small gift or a phone call. Anyway, hope you appreciate this small not-poem passage thing 😛 The verses alternate between that of the person and the friend. 🙂
You guys are awesome!
