Often, people will feel like they have no one to turn to in this place. But we have to keep looking for true friends. I am sorry that you feel that way. I guess now you have mutured and understand things better. But I just want to write that I also felt like this but I didnt turn myself away from the world. Thanks for your wonderful poem -cristy

When reading this I usually dont vote, but i like this poem. It shows that not everyone in the world is perfect and that not everyone can be trusted.
I just LOVE ur poem. u have a great gift for writing. Keep up the good work.
The poem is great, I am in 8th grade and at this time you can't really trust anyone thats why we should put our trust in Jesus. Or we could fight the battles of friendship just to be critizised.
this was a beautiful poem

Thank you so much for writing this poem. Poetry is my only way of escaping this cruel world that we live in too. I had (*have*) the same problem. I lost my friends to betrayal and careless acts. It helps to know that there IS someone out there who knows how I feel. I loved your poem very much, and you're an awesome writer. Keep it up. Oh yeah. and THANK YOU!
I loved your poem! Out of all the ones i read yours hit my heart because i too, am dealing with the lose of friends who said "they would always be there" but they aren't and don't care unless you can help them in some way such as getting them beer or keeping them from looking to killing themselves but when you are down and can't get back up the only one there for in the darkest hours is yourself and god. I have been in so much turmoil for months with my grandfather dealing with cancer, losing one of my best guy firends ever because lies told to my now ex-boyfriend , and not having anyone that truely cares. i really know what you mean when you write about crying and crying to yourself at night.
I was touched by this poem. I lost my best friend over something stupid with her parents, but i was lucky enough to get her back. I would be lost with out her. This poem brought tears to my eyes as i read. It is a masterpiece.
I love this poem! even though its kinda short it explains alot. sounds like you really mean it too. very emotional to me. good job!
The world offers a false peace and fantasy but the only one you can really have peace with is God! God will always be there for you, you can trust and confide in him and when everythyings going down around you he'll be there to lift up your head and tell you he loves you!
this poem explains me more than any other i can think of. thank you for writeinf this.
I loved this poem. It reminds me so much of my life and how I feel every moment of my life.
this is the best peom. i wish i had the talent to be a writer like that! but i really enjoyed reading it and usually i hate to read! thanks
Sounds like something I went through. I can relate. damn
I think that your poem is really great. keep up the great work.
this poem is very VERY deep.
I think this poem is very touching and very right at the same time,because that is the way i felt when I no longer was an innocent child! and i was shocked to find out that most of the people are bad and only think of their selves and I really like it!
Wow, that is such a sad poem. Well done with it.
i love this poem! this happened to me not to long ago.
I really liked your poem because I went though the samething. I thought people that said they were there for me would be there well they werent. It is girls that I cant trust anymore they hurt me to much. Thats why I have more guy friend then anyone in my school. so I vote for u.
tis poem ids exellent! and i loved it it is soo true. and applies to me in so many ways.
i think this poem is pretty decent.
i loved the poem
i think your poem rocked. And speeks the truth. I write to. But just not publicly
this poem is so true for me it just happned to me like 3 days ago!
This is a really good poem, I think it's very deep and u can see the emotion u put into it. Keep up the good work!
I love this poem it fits in with my life perfect thanks for writing it you did a great job!
I used to be in a wonderful group of friends. Then all of a sudden it fell apart on me. All of them were talking but nobody said a word to me until it was over. This poem is exactly how I felt. I love it! And keep writing stuff like this. It makes people feel as if they are not the only ones hurting!
I just read your poem and its say's the exact things I'm going through. It is nice to know someone understands. I thank you a lot.
i like that peom because a lot of people seem to loose friends over one person lies and it's very hard to try and trust another person and to call them your best friend again
This poem is very good! it shows everything, all your fellings put into words. it really shows people. what you've been through how you feel.
This poem is really good, emotional, but i guess thats what inspires me. I can really relate to this poem, Im sorry that you had to loose trust, Good luck in the future. x
that poem is so true it sayes everything im going through and everything i feel
Super FLY
it explains everything i am going through. im so inspired!
This poem meant more to me than you could ever know. It was as if you could see parts of my life and you wrote this poem for me. You may have had that period of "growing up" for only a few months but for me its been about a year in a half.
wow! this is a GREAT poem. it definitely made my think of a past experience. my trust of my friends and boyfriends is very slim and im so sensative with trust. thanks soo much for sharing this poem! it was so true and really well-written!
I found this peom so-o self appealing. GREAT JOB!
I really loved your poem. It sounded like a girl that i was reading about in a novel called Winter by John Marsden. Keep on writing that was great!
juz powerful.
you go girl. i loved this poem. i can relate- not to the exact situation- but the trust being broken. it hurts. this explains very well the raw emotion of it
very sweet poem. i think we all went through a stage like that. i sure know i did!
i think ur poem is awesome! im so glad i came across it becauseim goin through the same thing right now! i was living in a dream world and allof a sudden my friends betrayed me and so many lies and lost friends i dont know who i can trust and who is my real friends~thank you
this is a really good poem
Wow, very powerful and so true
This poem is really good. That happened to me too I lost my friends but along them I also lost the love of my life. That happened a year ago and I still can forget what happened I never felt so betray and so lost. Im also like you I write poems to escape from what Im feeling or I just do it to get out that anger I have inside me keep up with your poems
This is like the perfect and I do mean perfect poem. I too lost my two bestest friends in the whole world. A lot of people went for their side and I was left a loner. Itsaw then who my friends were. It's exactly like your poem. Have you gotten over it? Have you been able to trust again?
That poem is awesome! This girl def. has talent in writing poetry!
this poem illistrates exactly how i feel, for me it was like someone what displaying my inner most feeling that no one has ever known.
This poem is so true and i beieve i am the one you are talking abouut my bestfriend lied to me ( not no simple lie) i have had an hard time trusting anyone even my own brother
It was a lovely poem, i almost cryed because it made me think of how unsure life is.
This poem shows real, raw emotion. Not many poets can capture that with words.This is a very good poem.
Christina.Its an awesome poem
i rellay liked it!it is totally the perfect poem
I was deeply moved my your is absolutly magnificent. Well done!
hey, this is a really good poem.i can truley understand this poem b'coz im going through the same sort of thing. it'z a great way of expressing ur emotions!
This poem touched home for me.It tells how i really feel.
Yeah I just wanted to say that this poem was excellent in every way. I've written many lyrics about this sort of stuff but I could never really find how to express it as well as you did. I too, lived in a dreamworld and thought if i stayed strong, nothing could get to me. But eventually it catches up with you. If your still feeling this way, all u need is some confidence and reflection on past times. Once you learn who you are, and what you got to do, you'll be alright.
I really enjoy this poem, and think that every teen goes through this at one point in there life. So everyone can relate.
THIS POEMS IS SO GOOD! I AGREE SO MUCH W/ IT, IT'S HOW I FEEL! If people don't like you for who you are then they obviously arn't to good of a friend!
i loved this poem! i can really relate to it
very good, nice alliteration, nice amount of rhyme, and best of all, its in a sense true.
this poem is very good!Sometimes you have to cry and cry to let out all the pain you go through.
awesome poem it shows real life
i totaly agree with this poem because i felt that way for a long time i would sit in my room and cry and cry and i was all alone.
i like this poem it make me think about all the things i have kept for my best friend!
this poem is about a realistic thing, that happens to everyone at some time in their life. and i personally can relate to it, because i have just been through a very similar experience myself but my friends were there to catch my back. i am thankful that i have friends that i can count on. hopefully i won't lose the trust that christina lost and hopefully i won't feel betrayed.
i want to thank this poet b/c i messed up big time with my mom i thought i would loose her trust i didnt know what to say to her,or tell her how much regret i felt.then i found this poem on the internet and my heart sighed that was exactly how i felt about my life so i kept it on the computer and told her to read it when she got home.she did and b/c of this she didnt yell or cry to me she just said we'd talk about it all in the morning and that she knows how i feel.but as long as im sorry for my actions ,which i am,she wouldn't punish me as harsch as what she would have.all this misunderstanding my mother and i that has never really been resolved was b/c of a small poem with few words that described my thoughts to a T. thank you
This poet is just the way I feel about everything at the moment.
