I'm standing here

December 14, 2018


I'm standing here facing the world
No matter what it hurled
I'm standing here looking at the sky
Trying so hard not to cry
I'm standing here next to your grave
Because i'm trying my best to be brave
I'm standing here opening my eyes 
Without hiding behind any guise
I'm standing here no matter what you say
So please get out of my way

    This is really amazing. I love the rhymes that were blended so well into this piece so they never felt forced. The amount of layers to it is also incredible, as you peel away more and more into this character and their situation. I like the mystery you left us on, as we don't know everything but we can piece certain things together. I love the line, "Because i'm trying my best to be brave". It fit so well as you talked about this person standing in front of a grave and trying their best to not crumble looking at it. And that last line really hit me in the gut and was such a strong conclusion to this poem.
    Great job and keep writing! This was beautiful<3
