To Believe…

29 Jun

i was once there
i used to believe
if i would just fall
then id soon be free

if i could just wait
then you would soon see
the wonderful things
inside of me

i waited and felt
i tried to be free
but then you were him
and wouldnt believe

so i grew and i cried
i felt so ashamed
i had to grow up
and be my own name

i grew up and flourished
i was always the one
but in your minds eye
i was just for fun

now that its over
it still hurts inside
but i take each day
in great big strides

but then i met her
and she crys as i cried
and feels inside
as she might die

because in her heart
she craves to be free
she was hoping that he
would soon believe

i give her my shoulder
my words dont make sense
in her opinion
these words are too dense

one day she will see
she will fall and be free
if only she'd learned
in herself to believe.

    I am a strong believer in believing in one’s self. You’ve said things I feel, and said them well. Nicely done!

    Loved the first stanza:

    i was once there
    i used to believe
    if i would just fall
    then id soon be free

    Sometimes that feeling still returns to me so I stay away from high cliffs.

    Such a sad sad poem, if only we did believe in ourselves and listen to those healthy inner voices instead of succumbing to the voices of Depression and such

    I enjoyed reading your poem, and I like how the photograph captures the theme. It conveys true emotions and teaches a lesson at the same time.

    We have to believe in ourselves before we can trust & believe in others.

    Nicely expressed!
