Poetry Wednesday


It’s the story of a girl who held it all together 

even when it was all crashing down.

They told her she didn’t matter,

so she told herself she did.

But her words never had the meaning,

while theirs did.

So she told herself she couldn’t,

she said that she would never be.

Those words she said,

seemed more realistic than the ones

that had previously been uttered.

Now she didn’t matter,

To them or to herself.

She let them throw her to the ground,

let them take over her confidence.

All the adaptations that she made,

for the people who encouraged her with hate.
