Youth Poetry


If you walked a mile in my shoes you would understand what it's like to feel unloved, worthless, unimportant, a burden and being abused & bullied on top of that.

You would understand why I allowed my past to define me for so long...

Why I let my depression, anxiety and insecurities to control me....why I let people use me.

Why I kept it all on the inside and let it destroy me.

I finally understood that I wouldn't be the person I am today without my struggles and everything I've been through!

I WILL  have a bright future!

instead of allowing my past to define me, I will use that as an advantage.

I will help people who have struggled and who have been where I once was...and give them the hope that I never had.

I will stand by them and be the person that I always needed....for them.
