Bella here, a 15yo just trying to make a mark in the world.
I always write for myself. Everyone else's opinions are secondary to my own.

An Observation.

I saw an ant. 
If I were to crush it beneath my boot,
What would stop
Someone crushing me? 

Better Together

We'll never be alone again,
Now we've found each other.
You shall never feel betrayed again,
I'll never let you suffer.

Let them say what they like, 
We can't control their minds.
Close your eyes and away we'll fly,
In search of new worlds to find.

It might be lonely at the top,
But we'll always be together.
No moral is truly held lest it comes at a price,
We shall soldier on forever. 

No gate is too straight,
And no journey to long.
We shall persevere together,
To the beat of our immortal song. 

We'll never be alone again,
Now, we have each other.
As long as we stay together,
Neither shall ever suffer. 


 

Growing on My Own

They tell me stand up,
They tell me stand tall.
But they don't understand,
I'm still learning to crawl.

"Do better", they say,
"Grow up", and "move on".
Could someone please tell me,
Why taking my time is so wrong?

I'm growing as I go,
And learning on my own.
And all they can tell me,
Is that I'm going to slow.

Is there no one around,
With a kind word to lend?
Someone to hold me up,
Before my strength comes to an end.


 

The Strength Within

Stumbling in the dark,
Falling to the ground.
Blood upon my face,
Praying to be found.

Hope quickly fleeing,
Darkness closing in.
Outside me, the world is silent,
But it is deafening within.

My prayers of salvation,
Go seemingly unheard.
But just before I let go,
I hear a single word.

Believe.

Rolling over,
Wiping away the blood and tears.
Slowly getting to me feet,
Pushing away my fears.

Every Man for Himself

You look at me but you do not see. 
You hear me, but you do not listen.
Soon you’ll have forgotten me. 
But because of you, up I have risen. 

You should me the world doesn’t care. 
It’s every man for himself.
So instead of running like a frightened hare,
I’ve put my dreams upon the shelf. 

It’s better this way. 
Or so they say.
 

Refuge

In My Mind

In my mind,
Is where I find, 
A sense of true protection.

I am free,
To be completely me,
In the refuge of my imagination.

Where no one will laugh,
Or tell me I’m half,
Of what I know myself to be. 

In my mind,
Is where I thrive,
The refuge of my imagination.
 

A World Without Time

If time didn’t exist, I’d laugh a little more.
If time didn’t exist, I’d just stand and breath.
If time didn’t exist, I’d discover what’s at my core.
If time didn’t exist, I’d spend all day in a tree.

If time didn’t exist, I’d sing songs just to rhyme.
If time didn’t exist, I’d swim against the flow.
If time didn’t exist, I’d have a love who was truly mine.
If time didn’t exist, I’d sit for hours to watch a plant grow. 

If time didn’t exist, I would be true to me.
If time didn’t exist, I’d learn about everything.
If time didn’t exist, I could learn how to truly see.
If time didn’t exist, I’d weather every storm.

But who has the time?

The Unseen

Alone

Afraid of the darkness,
And of what it conceals. 
Afraid of the light,
And what it reveals.
Will people laugh
When they see my face,
Or worse leave me,
Wandering alone in some isolated place.
I am a coward.
But then so are you. 
That must be what makes us one.
The fear of being alone.

Masks

I wipe away my tears,
In hopes they aren't seen by my peers.
I fake a smile,
So they all think I'm worth while.
I can't help but hide,
I don't want them to know I've cried.

Protection

With eyes so blue,
He saw right through
The facade  of composed indifference .
He exposed the weakness,
The false resilience,
Tore down the wall of protection.
Saw her instead for what  she was,
A girl lost, and desperate to be loved.

Waiting

We live a lie.
We live to die.
Waiting, never doing.

Afraid to make a change.
Afraid to be seen as strange. 
Waiting, never doing.

Walking blind,
Saying never mind.
Waiting, never doing.

Sitting stagnate,
Just a fragment,
Of what we could truly be.

Twiddling  our thumbs,
To the beat of a drum, 
Pounded into our heads.

It's our demise,
When passion dies.
It leaves us sitting,
waiting to die.
