A Poem by Liv

About me trying to figure myself out. ...I think other people may relate. Maybe.

Sitting in solitude. Dazed and confused..

Feelings rush into my head that I've never felt before.
Who is this person who looks back at me through the mirror?
I'm not sure, I've yet to feel like I've ever truly known her.

Sometimes dark and full, the feeling within.
Sometimes soft and willing to let you in.

Although the necciesties of myself aren't clear-
What am I supposed to do while the earth spins?

Never sure of where to turn, 
always feeling the urge for something more.
Maybe it's unclear to see, to see into the real me.

Possibly I'll be stuck in the middle forever,
but realization is the first step to progressing,
and progressing is the first step to better.

Sitting in solitude. Dazed and confused..

I wouldn't change anything.. I don't like it when people change their writing much any way.. changes what is in their heart/mind. I love what you wrote. I can remember feeling this as well.. very nicely done! Thank you for sharing!

Short bursts of inspiration always produce the best work I think. This is brilliant, true - I can identify with it, which probably makes it more prominent for me, but it's beautifully written all the same.

You have a nice talent, this was written very well. Reminds me of a poem I wrote called, Carry On.

Good stuff!

Hey, my name's Liv. I'm 14, and I like poetry. My favorite poet is Emily Dickinson, although I am also very fond of many other poets as well. Just because I am young doesn't mean I can't write, but.. more..
