Confidence Is Key

Confidence is key,
a sentence that inspires me.
But how am I getting through life,
without that sole key?
I don't possess it,
nor does it possess me.
It's missing.
What did I miss out on in life,
that made me lack this confidence.
That made me lack the ability,
Confidence is key,
where could all my confidence be?
Surely I was blessed with some,
but now,
it's gone.


First Draft

Note: We have to write poems for my English class, and I wanted to try doing my first draft on here

That's all I can feel.
All I hear is the torment I have to endure now.
I feel worthless.
Life came crashing down,
all in one night.
One night.
Full of lies,
the feel of violation.
My trust in mankind is gone.
So many things happened,
when I was just too vulnerable.
Too weak, and weary.
Now I look like a fool.
I've been taken advantage of,
and all I can do is deal with these tears,
I'm just a little girl.
A lost little girl.


Today We Talked of Death...

Today we talked of death.
Those far,
those near.
In my life I've been to a few funerals, who hasn't?
Family, and one family friend.
Billy Griggs.
At all of the funerals of family members I've been to, I've never felt much remorse.
I either was too young to grasp the whole concept of death,
Or I truely wasn't close.
The funeral of Billy Griggs was the most touching funeral to me.
Albeit, I was never that close to him, considering he was my cousin's boyfriend,
I got to know him.
Right there,
As he lay in his casket.
I heard all the music he listened to, and relaized we had a connection.
Jack's Mannequin.
It was eeire,
Here was this man, I never really knew,
But now, I knew him.
I looked back on when I danced with him at a wedding,
And I just cried.
Not for me,
For everyone else.
I realized how great this loss was.
And I finally cried.



Day 31- A picture of yourself
And this is my final challenge day.


Never Say Forever...

Day 30 - A picture of someone you miss

Honestly, I miss Samantha Dinga. Her and I were best friends since the moment I moved here, to the moment I screwed everything up the summer between 8th and 9th grade. I had a dream the other night that I saw her somewhere and she started sort of crying (She's not one for crying, and I still remember how hurt I was the first time she did, I cried with her) and then she said she missed me and I admitted I did too, and we hugged and made up and were all okay again, and it was super awesome. I miss my best friend a lot.



Day 29 - A picture that can always make you smile
Best summer. WHALE NOISES.



Day 28 - A picture of something you're afraid of
Being alone. Deathly afraid.



Day 27 - A picture of yourself and a family member
We're cool.
