My Reality
Author: Leah


Everyday its the same
Same old pain
I feel so ashamed
Trapped in the dark
Wishing to be free
I don't even know the real me
Wanting to get ahead
But holding back instead
Every night dreaming Ive reached for the stars
When reality kicks in I'm back behind bars
Always struggling to hold back the tears inside
Always trying to hide tears of sadness
Tears of pain
Tears of knowing its always been the same
Always hiding in the dark
Scared to be me
Sadness is my reality.....

Hmm...I'm actually quite fond of this theme. I'm not too fond however of your grammar. For example, when you wish to mean it is, please use it's instead of just its. There were various other little things like that that I noticed. I really enjoyed the 'stars...back behind bars...' or whatever stanza. (Sorry, it just won't let me copy and paste the exact line) This is a good amateur beginning poem. It's obvious you put a lot of heart into your work. Good work and keep learning.

if it comes straight from the heart..i don't think grammar matters. i absolutely hate structure in poetry!! that's why a lot of my poems don't rhyme, and a lot of them probably don't have very good grammar...don't look at the mechanics...look at the talent!
