He Is As Cold As Ice

He Is As Cold As Ice

A Poem by victoria

inspiration is drawn from the most random places xD

Growing up too fast
and begging for acceptance all his life
he is a product of low self esteem and high expectations.

Bumped around from group to group
losers to druggies and everyone else
he is just looking to fit in,
looking for people who care.

Choosing wrong role models
and filled with misinformation
the lies tumble out of his mouth
hoping to mold himself into what they deem as acceptable.

Fifteen minutes of fame
followed by hours of feeling lonely and not good enough
(though he will never see how cared for he really is)
it has changed him

He is as cold as ice.

with a mind constantly working
thoughts and ideas both amazing and abstract,
interesting to anyone willing to look past his mask,
anyone who matters.

But instead of using them, manipulating his thoughts for his own advantage and well-being,
he mutes them.

So much is lost, all because he thinks it is "unwanted"

And the day he can release himself
say, "I don't want to be just typical"
the day he will realize he doesn't need them, because it is not all the same,
is the day he will feel the most frightened,
and the most alone.

But that's ok
because understanding, enlightenment will follow
and people will care.

it will all be alright soon.

This reminds me of me. Literally, it's what fed me the most inspiration.. I've felt that way all along, but I know deep down there are people who truly care out there. They are right in front of us all, we just got to stop and stare so we can truly understand. Great work!!

I actually really like this. The beginning talking about a boy reminded me of someone I once knew very well. He was bounced around, never really accepted his own worst enemy. I think many other people will be able to relate. It's amazing how a single line can spin you off into something really great. Nicely done.
