My Extraordinary Life as The Other One


My whole life I've been the other one
I'm not your favorite no matter how hard you try to convince me
Just look at her
She has a palace 
I don't have a closet door

I've heard the things you've said about me
I thought I made my tears noticeable
So why didn't you notice?

No matter how many times you've said it
I know I'm not a failure
I'm not any less than she is
Not any less than you were

Why is it that she can get something at the snap of her fingers
But I have to beg
for months.

I'm tired of this
And you wonder why I don't like being around you
You wonder why I break so easily
You wonder why I leave as soon as I get the chance

You make me feel so much less
You make me feel like it's you her and the other one
With me being
The other one.

But I'll show you I'm better
I'm not less I'm more
But for now

What if I Told You

1. What if if I told you you read that wrong?
2. Haha! I got you!
4. It's weird how our brains do that
5. Like how you don't notice little little things
6. Like that!
7. I got you! Or maybe I didn't.
8. But I bet there were somethings you didn't notice
10. Like how there was no number three. Or nine.

My Six Word Story

Feb 18

Clingy (Based on true events)

There is a girl in my grade
She is what I would call, well, clingy.
She would pick one person, or a few.
And stick to them.
She will follow them around
And talk to them 
And burst into their conversation
at any random time
Even if it is personal and private
She would get very sensitive
If we try to have a more private conversation
We?
Yes we.
I am one of the "Chosen Ones".
Yay.
She would call us names like
"Bestie"
Even if we barely know each other
She only sticks to us
Only ever hangs out with us.
Only.
Us.
It's as if she is the spider web
And we are the poor flies
But it's not like I don't like her
She's alright
A little weird..
But still okay
Just very..........

Words

You use words to freely
Anxiety? So do I. And everyone else.
Look around.
Depressed?
No you're not.
Depression is a mental illness.
A feeling you've never felt
You're happy. Embrace it!
It doesn't mean sad, stressed, or angry.
And honestly?
You should be more greatful.
Real friends?
We are real.
Enjoy it!
You can't be happy if you're so paranoid all the time
You're family isn't the only one there for you
We are
Please reconize that.
The world doesn't have it out for you
You are lucky
Saying these word about yourself
Isn't just hurting you
It's hurting us
We are giving you the best life we can
Please don't throw that away
Please don't throw everything we have done for you away
Life is not a game of chess
You are not the king
We are not pawns in your game
But if we get knocked out
It hurts us more than you
Stop
Throwing

Fine Print

   Okay. This is it. Today I will go to the drug store and get it. Get what? I am happy you ask! Hair dye! Yay! *Fireworks and confetiti* So yeah! I just need to stop bye and grab some hair dye! I was thinking about dying it blue, but then I wanted gold. But then I thought, Would that really go well with my hair? So I finally settled with...........purple! I am actually on my way to get it right now! I have wanted to dye my hair since I was really little, and have saved up a lot to buy some. Oh hey! I'm here! I get out of my car and step into the snowy parking lot. I walk into the store and shiver. A vent is blowing cold air right at me! I hurry into the isle with hair stuff and quickly check out my favorite (best looking) hair dye bottle.

Stop

Everyday it happens
Like the sun rising everday
But this sun is a hot firey sun
A sun that never sets
A sun that will burn and burn
And never stop

It drives me insane
It drives me crazy
It drives me mad
Please make it stop

Just ringing in my head
It will never silence
Just once can I not fear you?
Just once will you stop?

I can't deal with this
It affects my life
You tell me to cope
But don't you understand?
I can't
Until it stops

I didn't realize it until now
But this is the reason I am glass
This is the reason a single drop
And I will shatter
This is the reason

Can't 
Stop

Worth It

Is it really worth it
To pretend
But in the end 
Get nothing?

Is it really worth it
to take the spotlight
Off someone who needs it
And deserves it
So much more than you do?

Is it really worth it
To judge others
And discriminate others
When they did
Nothing wrong?

Is it really worth it
To hurt people
Physically
And emotionally,
Because of their skin color
That they wear proudly
Or sadly
Everyday?

Is it really worth it?

The Lion's Mask

The lion has a silky cover
The mask of a great golden beast
The dark and light of what is under
The very most and the very least

The lion has many secrets 
A story to unfold 
The whispers, voices inside it's head
Is just another story remaining untold

To follow the lion into the depth
And drown in your own sorrows
And the eyes the that take away your breath
Is just another reason to see who follows

The lion's mask is another way
Of saying there's something to hide
But honesty's the only truth
So wonder
What is it's thunder,
And what will you see behind?
