Peacefully Hidden

A Poem by Alicia Hirshey


Walking gracefully
Failing to make a scene
Heartfelt lies leaving me
Not once comparing
The sadness on ones face
Judging so quickly
I was worse off anyways

Little girl
Her parents never cared
They didn’t want her
They left her there
Everyday is a struggle
To fend for herself
She didn’t choose this
She had nobody else

Younger boy
In his teens
Black hair dye
Eye liner scheme
Inside his mind
He is wanting to die
You would never once notice
Do you look in his eyes

Poet to some
To most she’s a geek
Dreaming a dream
Within a dream
She’ll never be anything more
Nothing she writes will anyone adore
Falling apart
Tangled in this web
Full of hatred
Her only way of harnessing it

Mother of two
Pregnant teen
No less of a person
A w***e she must seem
Pointing fingers
The stop and stare
“what a life,
Your w***e-ish ways have taken you there”
If only they knew
This wasn’t true
There is more to her
Than me or you

Twenty years old
He’s made his plea
Running from something
Fighting to flea
Hiding images
He forged in his head
What would he have done
If he were his friends
Endless confusion
Tied into this knot
Holding on to something
That must be taught

So many stories
Eyes love to tell
Hold them back
Your heart starts to wail
Let it in time
Be written on your face
Let others know
Who owns your day
You are not you
If your running away
Stand up and fight
It will all fade away

Hiding stories
Most become truth
Spiders spin webs
To hide them from you
Look at me now
Do you see who I am
Or do you see
What is hiding within

Author's Note

Alicia Hirshey
When you judge, point your finger or look at somebody indirectly, do you know the truth behind why they are they way they are, Do you have any idea why they are this way? Or do you whisper sweet nothings until they are gone so you can just talk about them in your normal voice again?

Great poem. Good idea to target a wide audience.

I appreciate your unique style of writing. Simplisitc yet easily confines the reader.

Though this piece contains a lot less imagery then most of your other pieces, you make up for that with emotions.

Wow, such a stunning poem. I really really loved this. I liked how you told each story and explained each situation. It touched my heart reading the short stories that explained each life of impressions and lies. The words within that really want to speak. An excellent piece of work. :)

"Dreaming a dream
Within a dream"
awesome write-your depth in every stanza reinforce your topic for this poem...
and,yes...judging before you actually know a person can cause serious problems. We cannot judge a book by its cover!

I can't express how much I love this (we need to invent a new word that is higher up than love, lol). The quote at the beginning pretty much made my day, and it will make me look more. We had an author come to our school one week, and stay in our English class. Her motto was "notice what you notice". She wanted us to pay closer attention, and I think you captured that in this poem.
