The ones who accomplish true greatness,
are the foolish who keep pressing on.

are the wise who know when to quit

L’amour est pour ceux qui veulent prendre le risque et essayer.

I looked out a window once and saw a good friend and waved.
They didn't wave back.
I kept waving.
They still didn't respond.
I got sad and disheartened.
But little did I know.
That was a one-sided window.
I just feel really bad and not accepted because of my sexuality and many people at my school are homophobic... Anyways have a nice day or night!

Looked Up
Amy Duckworth Apr 2019
I look up every night and see the stars.
They give me hopes and dreams.
I want to be an astronaut.
Like every little kid.
Everyone thinks I am joking.
They find it funny.
They don't support me.
But those stars give me hope,
hope that one day I can fly off into space to see them closer.
I looked up and found my dream.

After You Were Gone
Amy Duckworth Apr 2019
After you were gone...
I hid,
I lied,
I cut,
I still loved you...
Now I come to terms that I can't ever see your smile,
or hear your laugh again.
Long after you were gone
I cared again,
I slept again,
I thought I had moved on.
But I will never forget you.
Your eyes,
Your laugh,
Your smile...
I still miss you
Long after you were gone
I started to think about someone who moved as a kid and was my only friend for years. Anyways, hope you have a wonderful day or night!

Someone Cares
Amy Duckworth Apr 2019
Do you feel alone?
If you do
know that someone cares for you,
if that someone isn't there know that they want you to be happy when they can't be there.
You're not alone,
you may feel alone but you're not.
Just know someone, or something is watching your back.
And that someone does care.
If someone really doesn't care shut up.
Someone does.
I want to cheer someone up because I am feeling down... Have a nice day, or night!

Its Okay
Amy Duckworth Apr 2019
It's ok to not be ok.
Yes, it's hard to follow your heart but...
Tears don't mean you are losing.
All you have to do is be true to who you are.
I just feel really sad right now and I wanted to make someone else happy. Have a nice day or night!

I realize I am
People give me the titles
"Evil ******"
"Insane *****"
"Violent Girl."
People have started to drift away from me...
They have done this because,
I am crazy
I am depressed
I am violent
I am not your average girl,
people tell me,
"You have to shave your legs."
"You have to act like a girl."
"You have to be weak."
I hate my life because of these people
My friends that I have left say...
That I am,
and funny.
They call me,
"A Helper"
"A Good kid."
"A Sweet child."
Some of these people have only known me for a year,
some for more than a year.
They have done this because,
I am smart,
I am helpful,
I am kind.
They tell me,
"Keep trying."
"Stop cutting."
"Laugh more"
These people shape me and I realize my pros and cons,
I have had a realization.
This is true there are some more things but I don't want to tell them since they are very personal.

Judge Me Then
Amy Duckworth Dec 2018
Judge if you want,
we are all
going to

I intend
To deserve it.
This is supposed to be kind of dark but also this is a train of thought I have had and most likely will continue to have for a long time.

The definition is:
A condition or quality of being sad.
It's more than that,
It is...
well--- how do I put this?
It's a way we express our displeasure with something sadly.
Sadness is an emotion, an expression, a state of mind.
Sadness its weakness...
but also,
Sadness is a state where we feel sad and express how sad we feel.
Some of us express sadness by, crying, hiding, and being quiet.
But sadly some of us cut, burn, mutilate, and starve ourselves.
Sadness is good and bad.
Sadness is something I give off as I write this poem.
Realizing what I have done and what I will do.
I strive though to change.
Sadness is something,
Good and bad,
Sadness is something that is seen as,
Strong and weak,
Sadness is seen,
as a state of mind and thought
What I meant by me being sad when writing this was because I recently started cutting again, and I was fixing up my arm, and poems seem to help me not cut so thank you for reading this and listening to me ramble on.

I have had many people tell me,
I have had many people tell me,
"We will be friends forever! BFF's!"
BFFs are not real.
You are lying when you call someone your BFF because,
You don't know if they will stay with you.
I have known many people,
and had many friends.
one tried to drown me in the second grade,
we haven't seen each other since.
One stole from me, attacked me, bullied me, and hated me,
I thought this was normal since I didn't have any other friends beside the girl before her and it took me a year to trust her, I made a wrong choice.
I still have trust issues.
Another person ruined a friendship between me and a boy,
she is now that boy's girlfriend and he left me.
I only have My Lady and my group of misfits.
I have said to many "Goodbyes."
I don't care anymore.
My heart.
Is done.
I don't trust anyone because of these people and more people.
I don't want to tell anyone "Goodbye."
I know how much it hurts.
I only have told someone "Goodbye." once.
Only once.
I am only not saying "Goodbye." To those, I love because they need me.

What love is to me
Amy Duckworth Dec 2018
I found someone,
they make me whole,
but one thing,
well, maybe more than one thing,
those things are,
I am insane,
But she convinced me other,
or she thought
but I still plan things that people will say I am crazy for planning,
She still loves me
and that is what love is.
The ability to hold someone's hand when they are not perfect or are having a bad day, or maybe just crazy.
That is what love is the ability to stand by someone no matter what.

Falling Apart
Amy Duckworth Nov 2018
To the ******* the bus that fateful day, to my old friend, to those who damaged me,
Thank you.
You made me realize that I can't be happy and one person scarred me.
To my old friend, she caused me to snap sorry.
To the girl that damaged me, you shaped me into this but I want to say thank you because you taught me to cry, hate, and hurt...
To the ******* the bus that fateful day, you told me that I was worthless and that made me think about who I am and not what I looked like.
I learned to care because of these people but I also learned how to numb everything out.
But it made me fall apart.
But thanks to you.
You filled me up with lies and truth.
Nov 2018 · 159
Amy Duckworth Nov 2018
I want to love someone but I simply can't love them.
What happened to my emotions?
I only feel numb with sadness.
I want to be happy for those who see me as a friend.
So I lie,
To myself,
And them.
I refuse to see the truth because I am scared.

The Other Day
Amy Duckworth Oct 2018
The other day a ******* the bus was talking to someone
She said, "If you can't see, hear or whatever, or don't have a limb, you should **** yourself." The other girl agreed with her and everyone on the bus started talking too.
Me, my brother, and one girl didn't agree with her.
Out of maybe 30 kids, only 3 of us didn't get involved.
The girl turned to me and said, "Like her, she should **** herself."
My brother didn't hear this...
"If that makes you happy, then I will. Because people like you make this world a living hell, so I would **** myself if that makes this world just a little better."
She laughed, and some other kids laughed.
The truth is that was the day that I lost my best friend to my anger.
I did try to **** myself that night and the night after that.
You shouldn't **** yourself if you are blind or deaf, or don't have an arm or leg.
This world likes to pick on people who seem weak.
We are only weak if we give up that's why we have friends,
To hold us up.
Please don't be like the girl the other day.
Lift those people up,
The people that are not "Perfect"
Don't be like that girl the other day.
This really happened... I really did say that and the girl was suspended from school

The most painful goodbyes
Are the ones that are,
Not said;
Or explained

The best way to not have your heart broken;
Is to act like you have none.
And he picked her over me,
Now I will always be second.

We are like spiders making our own web we call home;
That web is one of life.
If our web is destoried,
We get to build it again;
But some are unfortunate and are destroyed with it.
Life is like a web,
And we are the spiders spinning it.

A song has meaning.
It is a world of sound.
We drift away when it is heard.
A song has a use.
It is used to calm minds.
A song.

Fallen Over
Amy Duckworth Oct 2018
Who is that one person who falls over a lot?
Do they always get up?
Well, they get up for you and the others they care for.
Do you help them?
If you don't don't hold back.
Help then next time!
Have they helped you?
They help you so you don't give up.
Do this for them.

Fear is something we run from.
We run so very fast but some people are left behind to be overcome with fear.
I will go back for them and make sure they are all pulled out of their trance.
I will make sure they don't let go of the rope that life is.
I will catch them if they start to fall.
I fight for those who can't or just won't.
I don't give up.
I lie to face my fears.
So if you need to, lie, ******* lie if you have to.
We are not rocks stuck in one place not to move or improve.
We are like the air,
The water.
We flow freely in our own direction.
Don't let people force you one way.
I don't care if you say,
"Oh, they are just saying that."
"That's a lie."
What I am saying is not a lie!
I have been down the road that you are on right now!
There is a light at the end of a tunnel.
That light that guides you at the end of the tunnel is the people who care!
Listen, face your fears don't let them by and lie.
Remember lie if you need too.

I am a protector,
I protect those I hold dear.
But... I sacrifice myself for others,
I have no time for myself.
I lose who I am,
But I protect those I love.
They say that I am too
And protective.
I am like a treasure map but without the X
I am useless without who I really am,
But I am useless without the people I care for.
So I gave myself up for them.

Move On But Don't Forget
Amy Duckworth Oct 2018
People tell me to "Move On"
How can I when I hurt
Then I get told "Forget"
How can I if it hurts me
I lost my greatest love
When I was young I lost my cat, dog, and fish
They told me to move on and forget
I won't forget you
I loved you all
Don't forget anything you care for
Remember but move on from the hurt
Let it build you up
Move on
but don't forget
