I'm just another girl.

I'm just another girl.
My situation doesn't matter.
The fact is, at one point or another,
everyone gets let down,
everyone has disappointments,
everyone hurts.
We're all human.
We're allowed to feel these emotions
without feeling guilt or greed.
We'll all have good days & bad days;
days where you wish you'd never gotten out of bed.
Days when you think you cannot carry on any longer.
It's on these days you need to search deep down,
and keep it together when you'd rather fall apart.
Muster up  every ounce of dignity & courage you have,
and put a fake smile upon that gloomy face of yours.
After a while you will feel
Impowered
Courageous
Strong
Confident.
It is this that you will take away from this experience.
You'll always remember the pain & the disappointment,
but that will only puse you harder
to become a much stronger person.

    Very insightful and forceful poetry. Motivates the reader to become "impowered." You bring a fresh and welcome voice to Poetry Soup, Rachel. Don't let Stephania, Sylvia or whatever Ms. Esther is calling herself now stop you from sharing your fine work with us. Best wishes, Carolyn
