A soft heart in a harsh world - digtsamling

This is a mix of some of the poems I have written from my early teenage years up until now (I'm 20). I wrote the poems because I didn't know any better way to express my feelings. I publish them now because I think people (including myself) need to talk more about those kind of feelings so they don't bottle up inside the way mine did. I hope you like or can relate to some of the poems :)


15. Down in the dirt


I’ve been down in the dirt,

I’ve been abused in so many ways,

that I don’t feel like I have much worth,

I’ve even did some harm to myself,

and while others noticed something was wrong,

I denied what I knew was my cry for help,

and now I’m left with all the bruises and scars,

I’m sure some will stay for the rest of my life,

but that’s the price I pay for having a stubborn heart,

I know it’s safe to say I’ve made mistakes,

and some I don’t even know the reason for,

but the hardest part is to live with the shame,

and the feeling of my heart crumbling inside of me,

because when I felt so sad that I didn’t want to live,

how and why was I still clinging on to my fairytale dreams?
