About the Poem

An evocation of how we often feel as though we are possessors of multiple personalities. Touches on teen angst and how difficult it is for teenagers to form a sense of a stable identity in today's fast-paced, stressful, lacking-in-morals world.

Two People In One

Two people in one,
one happy, one sad,
Two sides of me,
one mad and one glad.

There's only one side
I try to let show;
my feelings inside
the others don't know.

I'm two people in one,
as strange as that sounds,
the real me inside
no one has found.

I give it a 7 out 0f 10
Melissa
I liked this poem because it makes sense. Everybody has two different people that lurk within them, but most people only meet half. The first half is coverup for how you want people to see you or understand your way of life, and the second is only shared with people special to you
Isabella
That just makes me feel so calm. It makes free from everything around me.
Melinda
this poem was very true about me. I can relate to this poem, because i feel like I'm two people in one.
Lucy
I really like this poem. I think the rhyming in the 1st stanza sounds a little forced but that doesn't hinder how great i think the poem is :) I can really relate to it. I recently wrote a poem about being almost two people and being all messed up and stuff, so this is why I like it. Keep writing yeah?
Brianda
I have just moved to a new city and im just coming out of homeschool so i can totally relate to that feeling of loneliness like no one is really trying to get to know the person inside of you. Mic Finger, writing poems is your thing!

This poem is really deep and makes you think about you and that you do have 2 sides and people never see or know your feelings and what you think inside head. I really like this poem!

This is a good poem. Around certain people i can't let my other emotions show through. It's hard for me sometimes but now i know i'm not the only one going through it.
Michelle

This poem describes me more than anything Iíve ever read or heard. "Two people in one" is the perfect phrase to explain my mixed-up situation. However, this may be an explanation that requires an explanation. It doesnít seem fair sometimes, that I have this other side of me that does not let me voice what I really think and feel, or what I really want to do. Itís as if I was born with the major birth defect of having two brains. One brain is my sad, thoughtful, more cynical and sarcastic self, and the other brain holds the part of me that doesnít really think very far into things, and absolutely refuses to be anything but happy and content. The last two lines in the poem resonate inside my head more than any of the other statements the author makes. He says, "the real me inside, no one has found." I feel like the part of me that is kept private is the real me, not my stupidly happy outward self. If I describe myself as sarcastic to someone, especially someone here at STA, no one believes me, they think Iím joking. I suppose Iím describing my inner half, the one I had back in grade school without my giddy shell. I like the private part of me, the old me, so much better than my stupid self, I donít think itís fair that I canít control which side of me is displayed.
Bri
your poem was really good and alot of people feel that way.
Jackie
