“Gwendolyn is a fairly emotional high schooler who is typically thought of as not normal. She also tends to be a loner.. but things are starting to look up! :)”




Selected Works:

 

I should write a poem;

A poem of Love and Brokenness,

Or of Love and Happily Ever After;

These are paths that you can take,

And there are many others.

If I were to say to you,

“I just met him and I already like him!”

What would you tell me?

Would you tell me that I should keep at it,

Or some other unwanted advice?

The women gather in pairs

Gossiping about the latest tragedy

Or the latest love story

In whispers and in soft tones

Lest someone hear and judge them

“I give up on love”

It’s a fairly common thing to hear

From people who have experienced heartbreak and betrayal

But I can’t give up

It’s not in my nature

______________________________

 

I can’t think.

I can’t breath.

I can’t eat.

I can’t sleep.

You’ve invaded my head.

Why can’t you just leave?

There’s no way to stop you;

I don’t think I can.

 

But what if I do?

And I’m totally different?

What will I do,

When I’ve lost all my interests?

You’ve made this impossible.

 

I don’t have my friends.

I don’t have support.

All I really every do is fall short of my goals.

My studies are failing.

My hard work is wasted.

You coming back has me completely deflated.

I got rid of you once.

Why do you try to exacerbate it?

 

Every time that you do this,

It makes me feel worse.

For a while, you tricked me.

But now I know better.

I know who you are

In your truest, badest form.

 

Your name is depression.

That’s all I need to say.

You aren’t just in me,

But people I see everyday.

 

If you deceived only me,

I might have forgiven you.

But you deceive even the strong,

Those who others look up to.

But instead of giving into you,

And wallowing in my self pity.

I stand up to you today,

And make others believe it.

 

“I know it’s hard, but you can do it!”

 

To those who are fighting,

I say ” Go, you!”

It’s not impossible,
