I am 16 just going through life. When i write i understand some of my situations could be worse but my material is all original and what has happened to me or in my life. I am no poet but just a teenage girl writing... Id love support and feedback on what you think could make it better. Please be kind and not hateful. Constructive criticism.

a question the little girl asks me

February 12, 2020


Who are you
I am you and you are me too.
Why do you look so sad?
Life is pretty bad

Why is your mouth upside down?
i am heading death bound?
Death is kind of scary
Not when you have depression to carry

You look tired
Because my life has expired
Where are you gonna go
Probably down below

Do you hate yourself?
All my love for me is on a shelf. 
Where are you going? 
To a showing.

Wait, you look like me. 
Yes but happiness is absentee
Am i gonna die?
You are the one with the discerning eye

Does that mean i can live?
As long as your love can thrive
But if your me, doesn't that mean
Life isnt a silver screen at 16.

    These lines have such an amazing impact...it has amazingly dramatized the end of the poem!
