ITS NOT FINISHED BUT TELL ME WHAT YOU GUYS THINK !!!!! ITS A POEM IM WRITING ON SOCIAL ANXIETY! I WROTE IT TO TRY TO EXPLAIN 2 MY FRIENDS WHAT IT IS I FEEL!!! PLEASE BE HONEST AND REMEMBER ITS NOT DONE HERE GOES..............
I USE TO BE LIKE EVERY OTHER GIRL,
NEVER HAVING THE NEED TO HURL.
I WAS ALWAYS HAPPY, LAUGHING AND WITH A SMILE ON MY FACE,
THINKING ALL OF HIGH SCHOOLS PROBLEMS I COULD ACE.
I WAS EXTREMELY FRIENDLY AND EASY TO TALK TO,
BUT IT SEEMS LIKE ALL THOSE MOMENTS ARE WAY OVERDUE!
THAT WAS THE OLD ME,
IM SURE EVERYONE WOULD AGREE
I DONT LIKE THE NEW ME, NOR CAN I HELP IT
IN FACT I HATE IT!! BUT I FEEL LIKE ALL I CAN DO IS JUST LET IT BE
WHAT DO I OWE MY CHANGE TO?????
TO SOMETHING THAT MAKES YOU FEL WORSE THAN THE FLU
I HATE THE WAY IT MAKES ME FEEL,
AS IF THERE IS NO CURE AND NO CHANCE TO HEAL
STARTING WITH ITS YUCKY SYMPTOMS THAT ALL GO OFF IN MY HEAD
LIKE a DISEASE WITH NOTHING TO DO BUT SPREAD
I like it. I gets the message across, though I've learned that no matter how much you explain it to your parents, friends, relatives, etc., they have a very hard time understanding because they've never felt that way. I think it is great that you are expressing your problem through poetry
I think your poem is awsome. I like you have social anxiety and I understand how hard it is to get people to understand how you feel. I think the thing I hate to hear most is....o' get over it! they aren't going to bite you! (like duh!)
Thank you so much for sharing your poem with us. I can't wait to read the rest of it.
