The poem is below.



My heart is broken and I am running scared
my life is wild with so much fear
my mind is set 
I will not hold on to any regrets,
Nothing will phase me this anyone can see,
I have seen so many bad things 
that can make anyone go into sane ,

Oh, can't anyone hear my screams?
I walked alone in my life;
Love was never nice 
so I left him behind.
I made it through many hard years
I had to learn how to stand alone,

I had to learn from my past 
and face the fears and let out my cries
and let my tears flow like the sea,
Oh, I wont let another stop me 
because I am free
and I will do as I please,

I am stronger but the pains are still with me,
but I had learned to dance in the rain of my own pains,
that's how I know I am still alive ,
even thought the past keeps finding its way back,

The same old people talk so much trash 
but they need to learn to clean their own trash up,
they are just waiting for me to fall
But if I do fall I will find my way back up.
