I Am Someone

I am someone
I walked past a dead face
even though the person was alive
I saw my eyes in the mirror
and cried at the sight
I looked at a person I didnšt know
and I met a friend
I got heads to turn
when I walked past
I learned a lot about myself
when I lost a new friend
I cried every tear in my body
when I thought about love
I got hit bad
then got back in the ring
I climbed a mountain of rocks
and saw an eagle fly over- head
I heard terrible things about myself
when no one thought I was listening
I realized I was strong
when I didnšt cry when it hurt
I found out who I was
when I was with someone else
I thought I was lost forever
when a friend found me
I held a life in my hand
and it was my own
I was a pawn in someone else's game
so I surrendered to a brook
I walked the fine line between surviving
and not wanting to survive
I still am
I am someone

i dont know much english but im going to try my best for you to understand. in my whole life nothing really good happend to me for some point every littel and big problems come into my life i find it easy to fix thats because i thought i had faithfull friends and true love to help me with it and i lived my life in a lie believe they are true or they do care . but from month i find out that they arent faithfull and his not even a littel bit true so i was really hurt i didnt find a reason to get up in the morning and i couldn't face them so one day i was searching to be gide and i found your poems and i thought you are right thsi isnt the end of the world i can be better from them i dont need them so now im stronger to face them with the truth and that is i know everything and they can go to hell after 7 years of liying so thank you for beying my angel.
