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.

airhead
i really like it. I can relate to it a lot
kali
i love u. its easy for me to say this because i dont no u but when i read this poem i wished i had written because then people might not judge me. they dont no me and you've captured this feeling perfectly, though its short and sweet i completely agree with everything u said
briana
u did so good i feel your feelings in this poem
desiree
It is good do more like this!

cayla

victor
your poem reminds me of myself for example my mom doesn't know the real me as the saying goes "we all wear mask"
SHAMBRIA

Taijhe
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!
emily

koala
I feel like you do and its so hard. People dont know that i hurt when i smile and smile when i hurt.
Hayley

Heather
This poem did really touch me. it really got me thinking about hiding your feelings and in essence yourself from everyone you know and love - i believe that's the mark of a great poem!
NONE

Kristin
This poem really does touches me on the inside. I thought I was the only one who had felt this way. I want to thank you for writing this poem.
lana
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!
Sam
OH MY GOD! your poem made chills run down my spine i have never read anything that reminded me soo much of the way i feel. I have never been able to capture that exact feeling the way you did!
Kendi
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
I think your poem prefectly puts into words how I have felt all of my life, I could just never put how I felt into words as beautifully as you did. Thank you.
Yolanda

Zero
I cant really describe why I liked this poem, it just touched me, you know?
Heather
This is a true inspirational poem.
cj
i love this poem it is exactly how i feel!
Ashtin
This poem describes me more than anything I’ve 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 doesn’t 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. It’s 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 doesn’t 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 I’m joking. I suppose I’m 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 don’t think it’s fair that I can’t control which side of me is displayed.
Bri
your poem was really good and alot of people feel that way.
Jackie
I feel like it was me who wrote this peom. This is how I feel I just needed to hear it Iguess. Boricua
bob
gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood i love it
Sami
This poem represents everyone.
Ashley
Your poem is so awesome. It describes how i feel all the time. Except one person knows both sides of me. She is my best friend. This poem describes so many teenage girls, its amazing!
riley
this poem reminds me of myself is weird how it's exactly how i feel. i loved it. it was how i feel inside written in a poem
rea
this poem touches me because it so true about alot of people inculding myself.
Ryan
I loved this poem because it is very true. We all have the fun-loving side we show around our friends and in public, but when we get home we are sad and bumbed out about little things in life that don't even matter as much as our love for our friends and family do.
brittany
this poem is so true. and i like that
Ben
Excellent, Poem amazing, i see that many people agree, who wouldn't. That poem describes every teen in a way, no teen is perfect and is always hiding or has something new to show the world. That poem touched me all thgough out my heart!
Jackie
i liked this poem because it described me! i can really relate to it. i write also!
Dorsh
LOVED IT!
Sarah
I really enjoyed your poem. It really shows that you know you act in a different way and you know it's not the real you. I really relate to this poem. If that is what you intended it to mean. You did a very good job. ~Sarah maybe sometime I'll put some of my poems on here and you can tell me what you think of mine. (just a thougth)
VANESSA
GIRL, YOUR POEM IS JUST DESCRIBING ME EVERYONE THINKS THEY KNOW ME BUT THEY DONT. AND THE REASON FOR THAT IS CAUSE II DONT WANT THEM TOO CAUSE I'M TO WEIRD AND DIFICULT. I THOUGHT I WAS THE ONLY ONE LIKE THAT BUT I GUESS NOT AND THAT MAKES ME FEEL GOOD!
Rainey
this poem is so me. i feel just like that.
Tosha
You did a awesome job explaining yourself in this poem. Many teens have two personalities , but most don't know which one to act upon as themselves. I am currently 17 and I have no idea who I really am. I mean I act as of 2 people around my family and friends. Around my friends I'm the outgoing one and the one who's never shy, and don't really care what people think. Although, when I'm around my family I'm shy and dont speak my mind. I'm scared that they'll judge me and the critic will make me less perfect than they want me too be. I just wanted to say good job, and maybe one day we will both find ourselves deep down.
Rachel
awesome poem! it's exactly how i feel. keep on writing
ROBERT

Curt
i really like this poem because it reflects how teenagers act towards daily life, and how u feel. It also shows how kids our age are to scared to show their true personality. They want to show a false image of themselves when they shouldn;t
