A Poem by Minnie

This is my time, why is it so hard to manage.

I try my best to just be quiet and keep my head down

You build an empire of you life and dreams, and it all can be

Taken in just a few moments. Its to hard to stomach.

This is the reasoning behind the shaking, behind the crying eyes.

So please tell me if I am such a bad person, such a horrible youth why do people try.

Why does he try to love me, why does he stay, why did everything go up in flames.

I have rage

I have pity

I have too much to manage,

All I wanted was to make you happy, make them see and be proud.

Its never enough and its all too much. So watch my rise and fall

Know you you will applaud.

If this is all my fault why do others tell me its no big problem.

I am so tired, I am becoming a voice, a voice I have silenced for so long that I almost forgot it was there.

So I drop to my knees, watch every single tear, I am ready for this misery to end.

I love him and I know him, I want to be happy, I want him to be happy.

If he sees me and knows me and feels me, why does he not run, I need love

Humans need love to survive, to strive and to make the heart keep beating.

So I say to him

So I say to them

I am done, I will no longer stand, I will see no more of the future.

I walked a tightrope for too long, with just the audience saying jump.

I am done, I will no longer stand, I will see no more of the future.
