To My Younger Self

Your walls are closing in
And trapping you inside
You feel there's no way to get out

You try to fight the pain
That's holding you back in chains
The earth feels heavy on your shoulders

People think that you're not from this world
They don't know about what you've been through
They try to hurt you by calling you out
You wish someone could tell you

No matter what the people say
I will always love you
I'll accept you either way
You don't have to hide away
It doesn't matter if you're different
Because it makes you special
You have to learn to love yourself
Before you fall in love with someone else

    It was a pleasure to read your poetry this Monday afternoon Gelicia. I wish you much inspiration that you may continue with your writing endeavors whatever they may be. Have a wonderful fun loving week and keep the old pen flowing. Love, Carol

    love the message here encapsulated in the last two lines. The feeling of entrapment definately resonates, almost like any question would appear to be a wrong action so you just drift. True love def starts with loving yourself first unconditionally, theres no other way. nice poem
