Prove Them Wrong

Post by Holleh on Sat Jan 22, 2011 12:44 am

This is for the ones
Who try to break me
They think they have succeeded
But oh, how theyíve failed

To the one trying to lead me on,
I am so over you
The only thing I feel for you is anger
Though I will admit
My heart still skips a beat when I meet your eyes
And I am so sorry
I ever believed you might be different
Does she even know?
You lead me on
To make me feel bad about myself
You think youíve won?
You think Iím broken?
Because of you,
I walk faster
I wonít look at you
No, never again
Will I ever
Think of you with warmth
You are nothing to me
Except for a pretty picture
To look at
If anything,
You have only made me stronger

To the one who says to use my mouth,
Maybe you shouldnít stand in my way
Itís the same thing everyday
Yet you lash out at me
For being nice
And letting you talk to him
When Iím running out of time
You say I have a mouth
And I should use it
You wouldnít like me if I did
You say I need to open it
I think yours needs to be shut
And oh, how I want to say it
But itís people like you
That are the reason I donít use my mouth
You really donít care what I say
You donít care what I think
So whatís the point?
Itís the people like you
Who make me feel like nothing
And make me afraid to speak up
But one day,
You will regret how you treated me
Because one day,
I will not be afraid to speak up
And you will realize
That your advice
Has come back to haunt you

One day,
Every person who has put me down
Will not even matter anymore
And maybe I should thank them
Because they made me that much more determined
To prove them wrong
To prove the world wrong
To prove that I am worth something
And theyíve just wasted their time
Trying to make me feel incomplete,
Worthless,
And alone
All they could do was put me down
In an effort
To make themselves look better,
To feel better about themselves
But they had no drive
To better themselves
Just to put others down
And think that makes them strong
When it only makes them weak
And one day,
They will realize this
And have no one
But themselves to put down

Just a quick poem I wrote, addressing some of the antagonists I've faced so far in my freshman year of high school. The first one is about this dude I liked who has a girlfriend, but tries to lead me on to make me feel bad about myself and stuff. The other one isn't really serious (neither of them are, really, but yeah). It's about this girl who stands in front of my locker all the time (though not recently) talking to her boyfriend who has the locker right next to mine, and I'm always too shy and don't say anything at the end of the day when I'm in a hurry to get to my bus until she notices me and makes a remark about how I can say "excuse me" or something before getting out of the way. So... Yeah. I also played with italics; I think they added a nice effect to the poem.

Hrmm. I like the message it conveys. Very Happy
And, for the most part, I like your use of italics. There were some words and phrases that I think didn't exactly need it, and there were others where I thought better words would been more suited for it, but hey, it's your poem.
And, really, it is the message that matters after-all. And that message is very strong indeed. The last lines are quite powerful by themselves.

Thank youu. :3
I could probably fix the italics a bit. May have over-killed it a little. xP But for now, mostly because I do not feel like re-doing the italics coding, it'll do. xD
