About the Poem

This is a poem that reflects on my life experiences. I was unable to accept love, therefore I was unable to give love. By realizing a few things, I am now ready to face my life's greatest challenge.

It's a very good poem. It's also very true and how I feel about life sometimes so I would have to say. I completely understand.
Carolyn
Ive been trying to put my thoughts into words to try and understand and after reading your poem, I'm so glad I'm not the only one feeling that way. Thank you
Hannah
Face ur fears head on, and know u are strong. Ur overcome of love will hurt, bt life is for living, so stand up and fight back dont just lay in the dirt of their filth.

Despair

If only the world could see what I feel
then, would the world, know who I am
I've loved, lost and feared the world
for it is sometimes too much to bare

Control, power, is what I fear
for I am weak inside and full of pain
I shout and cry, but knowing
there is nobody there to hear me
I swallow the shame and anger
that lies beneath me

I am lost to reality and living in time
Though I am struggling through life
and all that it offers, I am only human
and that is what makes me . . . Me.

Still, I wish for the happiness and pleasure
that I have earned, but realize that, I have
not yet overcome the world's greatest challenge

Love! and how to accept it -
I am ready to face my fears

Good descriptions, but plain, general words used.
Kiera
I am very touched by your great talent in poetry. Everything that you have felt is what I have just been through, I thought i knew what love was, But i thought wrong! Love is like the ocean, you turn around and get dumped! I hope I will find the right person and understand what love really is! great work
