Strong Enough

Strong Enough

A Poem by Marissa

Broken and afraid,
Feeling lost inside a soul. 

No one to miss me,
And no one to fight for me.

"-They do get on a lot better...without me..."
So, why chase what you don't need?

The world keeps spinning,
But time seems to stand still.

My mom loves me,
But, she will do fine without me here.

I won't be gone for forever,
Just for a little while.

Feeling stronger than ever,
I pick up my bags and get on my way.

With tears in my eyes,
And love in my heart;
I walk out of this house,
To leave this broken life.

So, with my love waiting,
And my best-friend too.
Off to the little town of Maycomb I go.

This is a poem I wrote for an English 3 project on the book "To Kill a Mockingbird" I had to write from the point of a character so I chose Dill where he came to Maycomb when he ran away in part 2 of the book. Let me know what you think please????

I don't remember a lot about Dill. It's been such a long time since I read that book. This work you wrote has sadness and hope in it. I like it.

Good flow of thoughts and I like the reason for the poem.
'"Feeling stronger than ever,
I pick up my bags and get on my way."
Good to be strong enough to escape a bad situation. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.
