I'm just a teenager girl
Against the world
Writing is a passion of mine
But time
Is against me
As strange as that may be
I write songs, parodies, poems, and some essays. I love music. I hope to be able to write for the world one day.

Haven't had much education on writing and absolutely none on poetry.

Immune to Beauty

FREE WRITING

they told me i was born seeing in black & white
they spoke of a beauty i could not see
my eyes burn

i thought i could see all the colors
in the bright blue sky
when a rainbow appeared
after a dreary storm,
but they said I did not know beauty
my eyes burn

i say what is beautiful to me
the itchy green grass,
the shades of blue in the night sky,
& a shining ivory moon
yet i’m alone in my exploration
my eyes burn

they state the sun is a golden yellow
they say its powerful beauty
what is yellow?
(what is beauty)
my eyes burn

black & white is all i see
i do not deserve beauty
i am a mere spec on the earth
smaller than any
my eyes burn

a person is a person no matter the
size
shape
color
background
beauty was made for all
though i may be nothing
i deserve everything
but when you have everything you eventually gain nothing
my eyes burn

i am what i have

they took something away
they stole beauty from a baby
then I deemed myself unworthy
my eyes burn
and everything went ----

    This is beautiful (though that's kind of ironic, isn't it?) Really triggered something in me and made me feel... I love it!
