Not again :iconnomnom2010:NomNom2010 1 0
My Beginning
The hardest thing for me
When I was in the middle of my depression
Was that I would lay in bed
Thinking about my life
And how it was going downhill
And how I could I change that
Not in the sense of ending my life
But in the sense of making it better
I was at the point of wanting to live
For I had found my passion
It was poetry
When I first started in middle school
When I learned that poetry is an excellent outlet
For emotions
I just let them control the hand that held the pencil
And wrote
After I presented my work
I was called up by the teacher and asked if I got this from the internet
I did not as the poems were my own
The teacher, the special needs teacher and her aids were flabbergasted
As I was told this was professional grade poetry
At this time I was writing more and more
I was emptying the bottle of emotions
That I was letting ferment in cellar of my heart
Letting them air out so they can become sweet
As soon as I was letting go the emotions
My world opened up
I was feeling bett

Acceptance and Forgiveness
This is the first step
To overcome the Everest of hate
That you must accept it and then forgive
When you do that you will turn the tide
And make that mountain into
A pile of sand
This is the hardest choice to make
For if you dwell of past
On the people who want to bring you down
Then will the most difficult decision
In your life
It is not easy to forgive those who have wronged you
And it is not easy to accept the words they say
The things they've done
I am not saying to take their actions to heart
But to nullify them with your compassion
Like the golden rule
Treat others the way you wanted to be treated
If you want to be accepted, accept your enemies
For when they realize that you come to them with a smile
And treat them like a human being
They will soon realize they have no power over you
And when you forgive them
You are forgiving them for not opening up
They have their insecurities too
The reason they pick on you is because you have something they don't
They are jealous of you
Why e

For the Scars I Have
I have been told I do not know pain
But I do
My heart was broken by the man I looked up to
The man who gave me life and
I was abandoned by him
I was young
I did not know what to do
Was it my fault that made him leave?
Confusion lead to depression and rage
And rage turned to flame of destruction
I fed the furnace of hatred with the things he bought me
Then to my own bed
Thankfully it was put out before any real damage was done
Soon after we moved
But my depression came with me
In my new house
Sometimes at night I would
Sit atop the staircase with a kitchen
Knife when everyone went to sleep
Silently wondering to myself
If my blood would reach the bottom before I died
After thinking it over and over
Tormenting myself with
"What ifs"
I would cry
Out of anguish and regret
And trudge down and put the knife back
When I got back to my room
I would shame myself for not have to guts
To cut myself to bleed out
I found a way to cut myself and
Not show scars
I would cut my bonds with friends
I woul

I smile because I am hurting inside
I comfort those in need when I have been searching for comfort
I lie saying I am okay when in fact I just want to crawl in bed and cry
I am that cheerful kid with sad and lonely eyes
I am afraid to let people see who I truly am
Because if they look into my heart they will see only pain and suffering
I push everyone away if one person gets too close
For it is the curse I put upon myself so that I will not break my heart
I trust too much and not enough at the same time
My naivety had led me down paths of anguish and mistrust
I have learned that to be strong I must be alone
And to be alone I must be weak
But I have gone against myself many times
I took the darkest path
Because I knew it would lead me to my fears
That I must overcome
The fear of letting people down
The fear of failure
The fear of abandonment
The fear of jubilation
The fear of the thoughts of others
And that to overcome these
I accepted that
I will let people down
I will fail
I will be ab

I am still fighting the ocean of sadness with its waves of misery eroding my cliffs on which I stand. When the battle was waged, it was a surprise attack, I did not have time fortify myself as the waves came crashing down. The waves took chunks of my happiness, after the first siege I had to collect myself and see the damage. I was horrified at what I saw, I tried to work fast before the next onslaught of negativity, but still I was unprepared. Only this time the waves took less. I was able to fortify myself again, only stronger. There were times where the waves turned into tsunamis and crashed upon my shores, but I survived and only got stronger. This is a war that will never end, for the waves can never stop, for as the moon pulls the tides, the negativity pulls the tides of despair. I will not give in to the madness that this ocean dwells upon, I can only make myself stronger. My friends keep my resolve immortal, and for that I am here to stand strong.

Today is Your Day
First thing
Happy Birthday Mom!
It is your special day
And I hope it is filled with
Joy and celebration
As you are a strong person
A fighter
You survived four cancers
You have came face to face with
Death countless times
But you won
And now you are at a point in your life
With your job where you can help many people
You help the families of the fallen soldiers
And I have not seen you more happy with your job
I am sorry that we tend to argue a lot
But you know I will be there for you
I look out for you, even our dog, Jakob looks out for you
In the end you are my mom, the person who gave birth to me
And I cannot thank you enough
For you have blessed my world by your presence
As you have for many other people
So again I wish you a
Happy Birthday
To the person who means the world to me
I love you, Mom, and I wish you a
Happy, wonderful birthday!

For those out there
The waves of the looming void
Hello, how is your day going?
This simple sentence can mean the difference
Between life and death
I want to tell you no matter what happens
When it all seems like the only person who cares
For you is yourself
There is someone thinking of you
It can be your parents
Your friends
Or someone you just met
I, for one, would love to sit down and chat over some
Tea, or coffee if that is your choice of drink
But anyways if you need someone to rant to
Or rave
I am here willing to give my ears
Willing to give advice
Willing to comfort you in your time of need
I will tell you if nothing else live for yourself
Because you can find happiness
You don't need to conform to societies
Be who you are is all I ask
And no matter what I will accept you for who
You are
If you fall I will pick you up
If you need a shoulder to cry on I will be there
If you need a hello, hello I am here for you
We don't need to know one a

NomNom2010 has started a donation pool!
0 / 9,600
Trying to upgrade Poetry Paradise. There's this promotion for the upgrade for 4796 points but I don't know how long it will last so I'm doing the full point price. Donate if you want to.

You must be logged in to donate.
No one has donated yet. Be the first!



So one of my mom's high school friends has set up a gofundme donation pool for my mom's medical expenses, I'm not asking anyone to donate or anything, but if anyone is interested in helping send me a note and I'll give you the link to it. This was set up yesterday with 14 donations already and a total of $670. Like I said I am not asking anyone to donate, I am just letting you guys know about this. I will be keeping my followers updated on my mom's condition, for those who do not know my mom has pancreatic cancer of the liver and this is her fifth time having cancer. The doctors gave an estimate of one to three years left for her to live, I know she will survive, she is a fighter and she ain't going to back down now.
