The Problems and reflections of the Youth (only youths think they are alone in understanding pain..i was no different then)

Ive been predicted of conflict
I predicted my eviction
Using infliction to contradict
A perfect slave to addiction
Swept this world for every fear
You, watching me and I watching you, slowly disappear
I’ve apprehended all attention
Used invention to comprehend
My intentions came with dark dimensions
I haven’t mentioned you’ll never understand
If it was never there why did I reach out to it in the clear?
Why did we live bravely then learn to fear, the fear?
Am I breaking up inside?
All I’ve even left to hide
Is all the tears I’ve ever cried
And if it were for god to decide
Would he be standing by my side?
No, how my light has slowly died
Is all one
And one all
Is one all truly?
Hand black or white
Hand alive or dead alike
Reaching out, for death or life
Out from this earth and sky
Cut in two with a vicious knife

this I wrote as a 17 yr old ...enough said ..angsty ..broody...i got over it...i grew up...strangely i still named this the juveniles rant then ..not now..

Note ** all my poems are copyrighted and have codes to prove ownership ... While I doubt anyone here does this ..still have to say Don't steal other people's work wether a poem is good enough or not .... It's personal and directly speaks from the soul of the writer and to take their work and say it's yours's wrong and unnatural ..your stealing a peice of them's nothing to do with money or's so much more than that...its happened to me .. It can happen to anyone .. It hurts and I always speak out against it even if to most it seems pretentious...

Hello Catherine...

I really like this poem, full of adolescent angst.

I wrote a similar poem when I was in my teens. The poem is posted here entitled Jeremiad.

Beautiful, as usual. I can see how your poetry has matured through the years. To me, that is the most important thing.

Nice writing...for a 17 year old (haha kidding, this was really good)
Definitely one of the better personal poems I've read, if it is indeed written with personal intentions
