Before I share Amanda’s poem, I want to share my thoughts. I read her poem multiple times.. at different times… in different places… each time her poem touched my heart, made me cry…. I feel you. I feel your soul. What makes good poetry to me is when the soul undresses itself through the words and all that’s left is raw emotion. Read her amazing poem below.
The pain in her eyes
No one will ever really see
The dark ghost hiding in her daily routine
Thoughts full of burden
Chest full of pain
Why trust these people
Why let them think it’s ok
Pillow full of tears
Drowning in her now everyday fears
She can not come to peace with the things she can only hear and only see
How long will this continue how long must this go on
The pain in her eyes she won’t let anyone see for this is now her life routine.
