About the Poem

I wrote this poem when I was going through a really bad patch in life. I thought that no one ever understood me and that I was totally different to everyone else. It's not a very long poem, but it's all my feelings in words.

Alexis
Seriously. I thought I was the only person in the world who ever felt like this. This poem felt like it was talking directly to me. I know exactly what its like. Thank you so much!

Difference

There is a part of me
That feels I am different from everyone else.
Something that I can't quite see,
Something that I can't quite feel,
Something so unreal.
But this 'thing' is always there,
This 'thing' with others, I will never share.
So I push it to the back of my mind,
All the thoughts of boys and clothes
And make-up, it is hiding behind.
Sometimes, when I have almost forgotten,
It comes back with such ferocity,
Angry and unforgiving.
I feel so lost and sad,
Whatever caused this feeling
Must have been so horrible and bad.
A lost memory or something else,
I'll never know,
Whatever it is,
I know for sure,
I can never let this feeling show.

I read this poem when I was looking for poems to put on my away message to express my "sad" mood, if you will. It really touched me, and it made me feel a lot better to know that I am not the only one who feels this way. I think this poem identifies greatly with many teens, and is in general, a great poem. =)

sherry
Your poem reminds me of something I might have wrote quite along time ago. I'm a mother now and feel that sometimes my daughters feel the same way at times. And sometimes not all of the time its best not to know everything. Sometimes our minds block things for a reason. But I do know continue to express your feelings on paper or computer, it will give you peace.

hey i really loved this poem. i don't know it touched me in an aspect of my life i can't describe. i feel the exact same way. you easily fall into the crowd, forget about your worries and then you soon face them and it is overwhelming. i loved it!
Rosa
I found this poem strongly reflected a part of me, and felt at the very least, that I should let the author know how I appreciate that she took what I felt and put it into written form. I loved it very much.

Kristian
This poem has touched me sooo much that it had made me get teary eyed. I want you to know that you have changed a part of my life. Thank you.
kendall
i don't even know how to start, to know that someone else thinks these same thoughts makes me sad, but also, in a way, helps me. eventhough i do not know you, you've touched me in a way i can't explain. thank you so much.
Brittany
I believe that this poem relates to my life right now because I just went through a phase of trying to figure out who I really am on the inside and out. I really like the poem, because I felt a sense of relief to know that someone else is going through the same thing that I am going through. Your poem is exactly what I needed to read today. Thank You.
Allie

jasmin
i really liked your story,and i think you should write more. this story really touched me.
myrhh
this poem is so real and moving, it opens people up and brings them to reality about there true feelings. you have caught the feeling everyone has and tries to ignor, the only thing to rid the pain is by talking to someone who cares, they won't think your crazy, and the only one to replace the empty pain is almighty God, . i know from expirience
