Feelings Poem

Poem About Having Two Roles In Life

Well, I am a kid. At school I am a nice and shy person, and some people feel that they can take advantage of me. And this had been going on for years. So it bothered me. I love my parents, but since all of my anger comes from school, I take it out on them. So that is why I decide to write about it.

The Real Me

© Ladaisha
I sit in the classroom
Very quiet and shy
People use me
Take advantage of me
And rip me apart inside
I let it roll of my shoulder
But the real me screams to be unleashed
The real me won't tolerate it
And won't take it
I want to let it out
But I am afraid
This so called inside of me switches roles at home
I disrespect, ignore, and argue with my elders
And that is what leads me down the wrong road
I want to switch roles
But then people would call me fake
And that would just make my life even more disappointing
I just want it to STOP.

    I know exactly how you feel. I'm exactly the same way. People at school are rude and they take advantage. I have nowhere to vent my anger except at home. My friends think I'm a quiet shy little girl but my mom thinks I'm a brat and that I have a real bad mouth. I don't know what to do really, but I'm glad I'm not the only one going through that

    So true! But I don't take out my anger on my family, and you shouldn't either, I hope you will get better and talk to people about it especially your family and people who use you.

    That's true. I am a shy person at school..but I am very different at home and with my family. I don't really know what to do.

    This poem you've written I feel can describe me really well. In my school, I'm the quiet little nerdy kid that everyone pushes around. All of the emotions that are created just bottle up just waiting to explode. But at home I'm totally different. That's usually where the explosions occur and it just distances me from my family. So yeah this is an excellent poem and just very relatable.

    I understand. I am like that and escape through art. My real friends who know me stand up and say something, but my mind screams. When I let it go, people at school stare it will get better. Just tell yourself to speak, no matter what comes out of your mouth. Find a non aggressive way to let go and relax. Try music, drawing, or writing. If your not good at being loud, than just talk quietly. Just remember, there are plenty of people who are in the same boat. I'm here for you, girl.
