I think of you
and all that we done together

I don’t think of you
at all

18 is a fairly small number in the scheme of things
but 18 years is a fairly large amount of time
18 years and life throws curveballs

18 is a fairly small number in the scheme of things
and 18 seconds is a fairly small amount of time
18 seconds and the day throws curveballs

maybe 18 seconds isn’t a fairly small number,
maybe it depends on the scenario and the context that 18 is put in

Where is that little girl of innocence
The one that grabbed the reigns
and learned to dance
That laughed out loud
every chanced she had
Where is that little girl of innocence

Where is that little girl who used to pray
For the less fortunate
in hopes they would be saved
From the heavy hand of sorrow
that too often gives itself away
Where is that little girl who used to pray

Where is that little girl who used to smile
Has her world grown weary
with every passing mile
You can speculate all you want
yet still wonder after awhile
Where is that little girl who used to smile

Where is that little girl who used to dream
Did she find out what life's about
and woke up with a scream
Where reality so it seems
justifies all the means
Where is that little girl who used to dream

Where is that little girl I used to know
Did she lose her innocence
along the dirt road
I pray the day I see
her smile once again shown
As I dream of the little girl I used to know

Quantum Realm pt2
Mykenzie Oct 2020
In the quantum realm,
time works differently...
5 years seems like 5 hours.

I once wrote a poem
about being in my junior year of high school
and wanting to slow down time

I am now writing this poem
in my senior year of high school
and still wanting to slow down time

It seems like it flies
especially with good friends having a good time

The past year has changed alot,
some for the good and some for the bad

friends lost and made,
family lost and found,
through it all,
time never slowed

I am OK
Mykenzie Oct 2020
I am ok

When its storming outside,
I am OK

When its foggy and cold,
I am OK

even when it feels like all hope is lost,
I am OK

Even when Im not,
I will be OK

Hearts are broke

Hearts are fixed

Hearts never beat

Hearts are weird organs
because everyone says follow your heart

But its not the heart leading you,
its the brain.
The brain cant be broken  or healed.

The brain works before you're ever born,
and in  most cases,
does not stop until 7 minutes
after your heart

so maybe my hearts not broken,
my brain is telling it to be,
so i think it is

but really, its not
and im ok

I miss you
Mykenzie Mar 2020
I miss you
Your obnoxious laugh
Your double knee

I miss you
The rotating doors of girls
who planned a future w you

I miss you
My uncle, My bestfriend
My role model, My idol

I miss you.

Right People, wrong times
Mykenzie Oct 2019
You meet the right people
At the wrong times.

That thing could’ve worked
If it was a bit later,
Or maybe a bit sooner.

We would’ve worked
If it was at a different time
In a different place.
With different people

We could’ve lasted.

You were the right person
At the wrong time.

Quantum Realm
Mykenzie Sep 2019
In the quantum realm,
time works differently...
5 years seems like 5 hours.

I wish I was there.
To slow down my last 2 years of high school,
because I'm already a Junior,
and it went by too fast.

I wish I was there.
So that I could spend more time with my friends and family,
because you only live once,
and life is short.

Grown up
Mykenzie Aug 2019
Grown Up is all she wanted to do
to be a big girl was  going to be a dream come true.
Well she grew up and reality hit.
"Yes i can go on a roller coaster by myself"
"yes I can have a phone"
I get all these privileges.
But Im not a little girl.
I don't have the sweet innocence of a child.
I don't have the mind of a child that doesn't care what people think because I care.
I don't want to but I keep going back.
Now the big girl wants to backwards and be a little girl.
A happy girl  
A free girl.

I don't know what to write
because when I write about your laugh
I miss the days when we would laugh endlessly.

When I write about your eyes,
all I can see is is the light blue that I could get lost in

Every single time.

So I don't know what to write,
because I only want to write about you...

But I can't write about you,
without hurting myself more

It’s funny.
I still feel like a little girl.
I’m still looking around and checking to see what other people are doing to make sure I’m not completely different.
I’m still looking around for help
Hoping for a quick nudge
Or a whisper of advice
But I can’t seem to catch anybody’s eye.
Nobody else around me seems to be looking around and wondering why to do.
Why does it seem like I’m the only one who’s confused?
Why does it seem like I’m the only one concerned about the choices I’ve made or where I’m headed?
Something I wrote 2 years ago.
I was 14 so it isn’t that great.

First loves are important

They show you what you want,
and they serve as your guide post.

You compare every love to that first one,
and you'll never forget it.

Birthdays are happy days,
untill they fall on the sad days.

Easter this year is my moms 35
Middle age,
grey hair,
wisdom beyond years.

easter this year is my nanas second.

Counting my tears.

When I think of you,
I think of perfection.

When I see you,
I see perfection.

I see toned body,
pretty eyes.

I think caring,
smart mind, understanding,
loving, funny,

See, darling,
you are not just your body,
but your mind as well.
both working in perfect harmony
to make you, well, you.

Self love
Mykenzie Mar 2019
Self love
is not measuring yourself
to other people.

Self love
is not measuring your worth
depending on how others see you.

Self love
isn't spa days and ignoring the world.

Self love
is facing your problems.
It's getting out of bed and being productive.

Self love
is cleaning your house, and going out.
It's talking to someone.

Self love
is looking in the mirror and being able to say
"I'm not perfect, but I am enough"
Self love is definitely something I need to work on. :|

Poetry scares me sometimes

It can make anyone feel things that are so sudden
and unwanted...

Poetry scares me sometimes,
because it doesn't have a particular form.

Poetry can be found in the sky, or the oceans.
Poetry can be found in your eyes, and in your smile.

Poetry scares me sometimes,
because it reminds me of you,
in almost every.

And that scares the living daylights out of me

Is it?
Mykenzie Mar 2019
When you google 'What is family'
You get the following description:
"a group consisting of parents and children living together in a household."

But is it really?
Can you really be family if you never talk,
even when living under the same roof?

Can you really not be family,
when you talk 24/7 and help each other with everything,
but you're not living under the same roof,
so you're really not family.

Not a poet

She says she's not a poet,
but she puts all her emotions

She says she's not a true poet,
but everytime I read one of her poems,
I feel the emotions that she put behind it.

She writes what she feels,
and that make her a true, real, unadulterated,

Will it go away just like a scraped knee,

I think not..

Why is self harm romanticized?
It's an awful thing,
and can lead to so much more.
It's a window to something happening
inside the mind.
These people need to get help,
they shoudn't be held up for all to follow suit.

Why is suicide romanticized?
It's an awful thing that hurts so many.
There are more options that one.
If someone is contemplating,
help them. Don't joke, don't fool.
These people need to get help,
they shouldn't be held up for all to follow suit.

They say
Life is a gift
That you should cherish it
Because you only get one life
One chance
Life will give you gifts
Like a family
But not all gifts are good
Life will throw curves at you
Like school
Broken promises
With each person
Is a life
With different thoughts
Different beliefs
Different families
Different feelings
A different way to view things
Like challenges
And life
Some might love life
They see the good in life
They see it as a gift
They love others
They love the journey
They smile
They laugh
Their sweet
Their kind
These people are on a boat
Floating ahead to see where they will go
But where they are now
They celebrate
That’s how to view their life
Then you have the others
They see life as a curse
They see the bad in life
They don’t talk to others
They hate the journey
They cry
They scream
They’re shy
They’re broken
These people are in the water
Drowning in their sadness
The water in their tears
No matter how hard they try to swim up for air
A wave of their guilt
Brings them back down
But isn't that just life?
