so violent for reasons you could hardly understand

as you grew older you begin to comprehend

this bottled up anger, you released unknowingly

The thoughts that i think as i stand in the shadows of the old me

just a child with feelings that you could not express

It was as if I was paralyzed with mixed emotions

And deaf ears fell upon words of encouragement

In the shadows of my old self i feel such disdain

till i found Poetry to release such pains

to my old self i understand so must tell this

your loneliness does not have to be your best friend

your sadness must not guide your steps

give it a while you turn out be awesome
