My friends say I'm perfect,
But they don't know what’s behind the grades
The “pretty”, “hardworking”, “talented” me,
A lot more is going inside then what you see

No one except *** knows who I truly am,
Well, I’ll tell you who I am
I'm a girl who wants to be wild and crazy like a normal kid,
But can't because I'm expected to be a perfect little kid

I remember when I used to be an outgoing girl,
But for now, I hide in my shell
I used to like to hang out with friends,
But soon, that had to end

“Your cousins got straight A1s for their exams”,
“Your cousins got perfect scores for their A-levels”
My other family members raised the bars of expectations,
Little did I know, that had to be my expectations too

I wonder how long more I can keep up with this pace,
With all the pressure around me surface
I just want to live, humble and true,
Lord, please help me live my life for You
aah let this out for now and well the people who know me personally will probably never read this/know it's me but oh well *** is the only One i need. :)

I want you to know
something I'm trying to hide
the way that I love you
is stuck bottled up inside.

I want to tell you
exactly how I feel
and that my feelings
are completely real.

I want to tell you
that I truly do
love you with all that I am
this is the truth.

I hide this feeling
only because I know
you don't feel the same
and I can't let you go.

I don't tell you this
for many reasons
but mainly because
my friendship with you
is too important
to ruined by three words...

another one :")   Now I've just got to just *** with my life :)
When I see you in the morning,
it brightens up my day.
There are so many thoughts on my mind,
so many words I want to say.

I want to tell you how I feel,
but the words I cannot find.
They're all mixed up with my thoughts
that are running through my mind.

I've been keeping it locked up
because I know there's not a chance.
You never look my way.
You don't even take a glance.

You don't even know you're doing this,
toying with my heart.
I wish I could just tell you,
but I don't know where to start.

Should I tell you how much you mean to me
or how badly I want to be with you?
If I were to say these things
how would you react, what would you do?

Would you never talk to me again?
Would you never look my way?
That would just bring me back
to where I am today.

Then I'd start all over
and choose a different route
to make you understand
my feelings that want out.

I don't know what to do
or even how to say.
Maybe I should lock it up
and keep myself away.

My heart would ache even more,
but maybe for the good.
I just really want to tell you
only if I could.

Ahhhhhhhhh just found this beautiful and relatable poem :) anyone else relates to it?
The righteous and blameless Saviour alone carried the cross,
For someone so unworthy and wretched like me, You paid the cost
Through redemption in Your Son, we are justified freely by Your grace
With new eternal life, may we seek Your face

You lovingly sent Your Son to die on the cross of Calvary for me,
Now that salvation is complete, forever I’m free!
My chains are gone, my debt is paid;
Through the cross, new hope for me is laid

My soul rejoices because Calvary covers it all,
Despite my sin and shame, You still gave Your call
You are merciful and faithful to save,
Nothing can ever separate us from Your love and grace!

Come, let us confess our sins and ask for forgiveness,
The faithful One will cleanse us from all righteousness
In Your light, we see light;
For in You, is the fountain of life!

Inspiration: Romans 3:24, 1 John 1:9, Psalms 36
Rejoice in the Lord! :) let this Christmas be joyous because the Lord Jesus Christ was sent as a Saviour for all of us to have eternal life!

The Years have passed by,
In the blink of an eye,
Moments of sadness,
And joy have flown by.

People I loved,
Have come and have gone,
But the world never stopped,
And we all carried on.

Life wasn't easy,
And the struggles were there,
Filled with times that it mattered,
Times I just didn't care.

And now as I grow older,
It's become very clear,
Things I once found important,
Were not why I was here.

And how many things,
That I managed to buy,
Were never what made me,
Feel better inside.

And the worries and fears,
That plagued me each day,
In the end of it all,
Would just fade away.

But how much I reached out,
To others when needed,
Would be the true measure,
Of how I succeeded.

And how much I shared,
Of my soul and my heart,
Would ultimately be,
What set me apart.

And what's really important,
Is my opinion of me,
And whether or not,
I'm the best I can be.

And how much more kindness,
And love I can show,
Before the Lord tells me,
It's my time to go.

I chanced upon this poem, and made some amendments to it. Sometimes I wonder: Am I using my time wisely? Or am i just wasting my time away? What else can I do to make my life more meaningful?
School gets me really caught up, and my hobbies too, so these days I hardly spent time reading ***'s word. I feel guilty about that, about not being consistent, about not making a lot of effort to grow my faith in Him.
I'm overwhelmed, I'm stuck in a spot. I have come to find out that I really have a passion in music, in songwriting, singing, arranging, dancing, and people say I have the looks too. I go for lessons, courses, and even have my own mini recording studio (which is coming soon). Since this year I've been pondering about whether I should go to Korea and pursue my dreams, and i'm just about the age to go there, audition and be a trainee, but there's the pros and cons. The language is not the problem, but my family thinks my dreams are just because I'm hot-headed and they seem to not support me. So whenever anyone asks me what my ambition is, I'll say that i want to be a lawyer, prosecutor, doctor etc. When will i ever be able to reveal to everyone my real ambition and dream?... *** please help me to trust in Your perfect plan for me, and that opportunities will come if it is truly Your will, because after all, I'm a 13 year old

¬ to those who bothered to read my distress, thank you :)

The past is the past for a reason.
That is where it is supposed to stay,
But some cannot let it go.
In their heads, it eats away

Until all their focus becomes
The person they used to be,
The mistakes they made in their life.
Oh, if only they could see

That you cannot change what happened,
No matter how hard you try,
No matter how much you think about it,
No matter how much you cry.

What happens in your lifetime
Happens for reasons unknown,
So you have to let the cards unfold
Let your story be shown.

Don't get wrapped up in the negative.
Be happy with what you have been given.
Live for today not tomorrow.
Get up, get out, and start living,

Because the past is the past for a reason.
It's been, and now it is gone,
So stop trying to think of ways to fix it.
It's done, it's unchangeable, move on.
Found this poem, I thought it is really meaningful, credits to @Donna: what a lovely poem you have written :) Well, let us forget the past, the mistakes, and stand up and learn from there. *** has a plan for all of us, so we should entrust Him with our life & trust in His plans for us! Let us not fret, but seek Him diligently :) Let us continue in our walk of faith, and in seeking Him! Amen and *** bless :)
*** gave each of us a special family
that we can call our own.
A family that loves us for who we are,
so we would never feel alone.

They may not like everything we do
or everything we say,
but the beautiful thing about "family"
is that they love us anyway.

Sometimes we feel rejected
by people who do not care,
but our hearts are warmed when remembering
that our family is always there!

So hug them a little more often,
for sometimes we hurt the ones we love.
And tell them how much you love them,
for they were sent to you from above.

Edited version :)
Some of us might be facing family problems, whether we don't feel loved, cared for, appreciated. However, I urge you to really reflect. communicate with them more, remember how they stood beside us through thick and thin. Let us rejoice, that our loving heavenly Father has blessed us with family, and all other things! ♡♡♡
Exams are finally over, I've been really inactive, but I hope that my poems can bring a smile to someone, make someone's day, or even encourage someone :) ♡
