Forced Starts with an F

Forced Starts with an F

A Poem by AmeliaGerhardt

I tried to force you to have feelings for me
Just like I try to force my feelings onto paper

Somehow I thought if I could just find some way
to be pretty enough,
to be funny enough, 
to be smart enough,
you would finally realize I'm special

Somehow I thought if I could just find some way for my writing
to be bold enough,
to be vulnerable enough, 
to be relatable enough,
someone would finally take the time to read it

You see, I sit and think
about how I could change myself
and change my writing
so that I'm not the only one
with any idea of my actual worth

But the truth is, 
I'll never receive the attention I need, the 
recognition I deserve, or the love I long 
for if I continue to force it

Because all I'll get is heartbreak, and 
another sheet of paper to crumble 
and toss at my overflowing can.
