I am a girl…

I wrote this poem in 2013, and it is very close to my heart. The first draft goes like this:

I am a girl, No one will listen,
Whether for a moment or more, I will be alone.

I can cry with my pillow, even I can hide tears,
No one is here for me, to take away my fears.

I am scared to walk, even to climb on my bed,
That I am gonna miss someone, maybe you, mom or dad.

I love everyone, and try to take care of all,
But whenever I need, there is no one to call.

I have felt all this, even more than this,
Still I say; I am a girl, I can’t even list.

These fears these responsibilities, have loaded me down,
Still you know I am a girl, I can’t countdown.

My tears will dry, my worries will end,
One day you will miss me, when I will meet my end.

I will be lying down, with no tears at all,
All of you will miss me,
For this all… For this all…

  1. An absolutely amazing poem…poems written about any people feeling and love always come off the most strongly to me…there’s so much emotion in this. I love it. I know exactly how you feel.

    it’s hard to pick out one stanza from this poem to congratulate you on…mainly because the entire thing was filled with only great sections. this was an ‘all killer, no filler’ type of work :). very nice. great job
