"Reach For The Stars, Be Held Back"

She had big dreams for a girl so young


She wanted the press and the fame


She would pierce her skin until it stung


Her red marks are the ones to blame


 


Her eyes shined bright like the sun


Her hair was beyond compare


She can never undo what has been done


Her skin give a visual of each red tear


 


Imagine her picture shown worldwide


Her face shown on every wall


Now she has every reason to hide


She could have been involved in it all


 


Now she watches her weight


Hoping for a second chance


But after seeing her arms full of hate


They won't give her a second glance

This poem is about me. I have cut for quite a few months and I dream of becoming a singer. Now I am anorexic trying to make an impression on everybody who can make me famous

I'm really impressed with this one because it's shows who you are, you know. I did one myself of who I was just a few of them but I can't enroll them now, but one is MAFI and I know my other is pen, really good. It will either have that in the title so look for those two. I think you will like them.
