She speaks to me fondly
of passions and talents,
of guitars and stars,
with such breathless intensity
then stops short and
apologises
for speaking at all.


All because somewhere in her life,
someone she loved broke her heart
by ignoring
her beautiful words
and telling her to
shut up,
keep it down,
nobody cares.


People aren’t born sad.
We make them that way.
You are all so beautiful and so gifted and so talented. Please don't listen to the world when they deride you and let you down. I pray that you all speak your minds and are welcomed and loved for it by someone you hold dear. :heart:

Thank you! Huggle! 
I don't get so much shut up as that glazed look people give when they don't care what you are talking about, but the feeling and reaction is the same.

It's sad, because that's completely true. We come into full bursting, full of hope , of youth and joy.

How long we can stay that way is another matter altogether...

"No, Stephen, I don't want to hear another word out of you!"
"But--"
"No buts!"

And that, kids, is how I gave up on my dream of becoming a Pikachu when I grew up.

Your poem rocks, and speaks the truth,
society teaches us from time of youth
that we're worthless unless we conform.
It's unacceptable to go outside the 'norm'.
What folks should remember as they get older
true beauty's NOT in the eye of the beholder. 
True beauty exists within your heart, 
it's why refusing normality is the best art.
Don't let em' dull your inner light,
for you're all bright stars in pitch black night.

I know that feeling all too well...most people just find my ever flowing ideas and talking annoying. And they don't hesitate to let me know it, even if it's not said out loud. The looks are enough.

that hit hard. Don't ever stop knowing that you are beautiful. I don't know you, but one day you will paint something so happy, the world stops to cry, and in your heart, you'll know you never have to cry again.

I know that feeling all to well... I was more told that I would fail/was a failure, rather than that nobody cares. Pretty much the same outcome though.

The message here is beautiful! I so agree and I can relate to it. many times I've been afraid to speak my mind because I thought I would sound foolish, and I also have some friends who are afraid of sharing me their passions and their thoughts for the same reason! When they show ashamed I'm like "Come on these are the talks I've been afraid to have too!" Haha, but that fear is now gone thanks to a recent moment when somebody told me everything of me was wrong. I realized the wrong one was him, as I wasn't doing anything hurtful. I'm having some other dark issues right now but I'm free from that old chain and it feels great! :la:

Thanks for sharing your poem, you gave me hope! :love:

I... I want to thank you, beyond what I can say, for writing this...
In such few lines it seems like, you've wrote something that mirrors my everything...
In such few words, you've made me cry a little, for how you have so clearly written the truth,
Not just for me, but for countless others who have been silenced before.

So true...but...its worse if they pretend to care and at the last moment they say they never cared, that they just talked to you for fun...then they leave you just like that.
