I wonder

I wonder what it would be like to be in someone else's shoes.
Would life be easier or will I be confused?
It would never happen,
so I can only imagine
I can only wonder.

She was lost

She had so many questions,
but got no answer.
She knew they didn't accept her;
She could hear their laughter.
She didn't blame them;
She was a living disaster.
She was living day to day,
dreaming of her happy ever after.

Remember to forget

Keep remembering to forget
what you have gone through.
Keep remembering to ignore
what you know is true.

Keep walking ahead,
with your eyes closed.
Keep insisting to live your life,
totally unopposed.

Keep denying facts,
you see, you hear, you read.
Keep waiting for the bitter
to magically turn into sweet.

Keep hurting.
Keep crying,
expecting the whole world to care
and you'll never get anywhere.

Let your life turn into a mess
and you will never taste success.

Enough with the words *updated nov 19th*

Enough with the words.
They hurt so bad.
They make me doubt myself
and everything I have.
This is an issue,
that must be taken seriously.
We all have our fears.
We all have our insecurities.
Stop making fun of me;
it's not even fun.
You're going to regret this
long after I'm gone.
So let's put an end to this.
Let's stop gossip.
We will live in a happy place.
You know we all want it.

*update nov 19th*
Note about this poem:

Just to clear things up: even though I speak in the 'I' person and use the words "me" & "myself", I'm not talking about myself here. I showed this to some people and they were like "what did we say to hurt you?". I am not complaining about how I am treated, or whatever.

This is why I wrote the quote entitled "we are not the poem" at the bottom of my blog. When a poet write a poem, it is not necessarily about what he feels. It could be about a thought he had about a moment he never had. It could be about someone who couldn't speak for themselves.

The reason why I wrote this poem is because it is something that happens in all times and places; people criticizing each other, laughing at each other and consequently hurting each other. People never know how much it hurts until it happens to them. We hear stories everyday about depression and fights, and I think that all that is not worth it. We are different people. We have similarities, but we are our own personalities. We should try to accept each other the way you are.

“The best way is just be nice to people. The most important commandment is treat others as you would want others to treat you.” - Rob Cronin

You can't bring me down

Just do something

Clear your head. Block every thought that tries to make you- well, think.

Now, concentrate.

Try to remember what it was like to be somewhere else; another time, another place.

Do you remember what it was like to be fifteen?
Do you remember what it was like to be ten?
How about five?
Do you remember what it is like to be in the country side; the air, the quiet, the nice people?
How about a loud city?

Notice the beauty of nature.
Feel the summer breeze.
Listen to the birds sing.
Stare at the clear blue sky.

Pick up the phone and call an old friend. Remember the good times.
Help the needy.
Spend time with people you love.
Write a letter to your future self.

Just do something.

"Stay strong"

That is a phrase said to us at hard times...
but what does that mean?

Despite the fact that it is impossible to obtain one definition for the word "strong",
but it just means:

determined. powerful.

"Stay strong" means:

Don't freak out in spite of the hard time you're going through.

It takes a patient person to have strength.


You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. 
-Eleanor Roosevelt

Above all challenge yourself. You may well surprise yourself at what strengths you have, what you can accomplish.
-Cecile Springer 

Good actions give strength to ourselves and inspire good actions in others.


No army can withstand the strength of an idea whose time has come. 
-Victor Hugo 

What doesn't kill us makes us stronger. 
-Friedrich Nietzsche

What this power is, I cannot say.
All I know is that it exists
and it becomes available only when you are in that state of mind
in which you know exactly what you want
and are fully determined not to quit until you get it.

-Alexander Graham Bell

I could do nothing without problems,
they toughen my mind.
In fact I tell my assistants
not to bring me their successes for they weaken me;
but rather to bring me their problems,
for they strengthen me.

-Charles F Kettering

It's really weird when you have spent many, many years with yourself; 24 hours a days, 7 days a week. You've been with yourself all this time; through the ups and downs, through the rights and wrongs, through the good memories, through the childhood. You've heard everything you said and you know about your fears and all the battles you fought bravely, but still:

You don't know yourself.

But every single day you live, you explore the things you have inside your mind, your heart, your character.

That is what we do everyday; discover, discover, discover.

Dreams will always seem
that they are dreams,
decide to make them come true.
Then, you will see
that they are nothing but reality
that is hidden over the hill,
that you will only find,
when you decide to climb.

I look up at the mountain.
I remember well
everything that happened
the day I fell.

I had been walking forever
and climbing even more
since the opportunity came knocking on my door

I was excited
to rise above the others,
prove that I am special
one way or another.

I did my best
I was almost there
after spending days
exposed to the cold air

I reached the mountain top
I was on top of the world
Thought "I am above of the others,
I'm the best girl"

Everything was perfect.
I was ready to plant the flag
then I would leave
and start to brag.

But, out of the blue,
pushed me a scary bird,
I fell off the mountain
without saying a word.
