Through the lens, you see is a smiling girl. On the screen, she stares back at you with glistening green eyes. Everything about her screams "happy!" Everything you read makes you smile,
It seems that all this timeThe odds have been stackedAll around and above meStabbing at what I lacked  
A turbulent mind
Would a filter be typing? Would a filter mean no erasing? Does that mean I can't correct my grammar?   I'm going to give you the realest me there is, no bullsh*t.   Well, to begin, my appearance.
#nofilter, #selfie, #natural, #fleek Hash tags are the holy grail of most social media websites I can use them to show my followers what I'm wearing Or show them the memories that I'm sharing 
The life of a young woman is boundless and untamed There is no way of telling where she will go next or who she will become The crazy twirl that destincts Who she is   The girl I was years ago is gone
One stepand I felldown,down,into the dark.You promisd youwould save me,keep me afloat.But I remember thoselies well,as the tears floodeverything I know.
Morning, its your wake up call, Don't fall back asleep, you might not get another chance, This might make you want to get up and just dance, Rewards don't just come, don't just glance,
Quadrant I avouches positivityNo matter what angle you gaze fromEvery daybreak, we wake up in the origin
Self-seen The strongest I've ever been A societal strain Recites lies and prompts pain But I Refuse the abuse Fight hostility with happiness And affliction with bliss To be durable
Come, Sit down and view my world Let me take you in   They say my name As if it is I that should be ashamed. And yet, I win another battle  
After 23 years, the eyes seen so much, trying to keep up in life, but its always in a rush. High School flew by, Undergrad did too, struggling to get by, while my bank account gave me the blues.
“You walk funny.” These words have plagued my school experience. No one knows the reason behind this walk, They don’t know that my muscles don’t work and I’m slower than the rest
Some not all can see, But we all have flaws don't we? Flawless is not me.
a past coverd by inkwell black and white memories and a preasent full of unfamilar faces  who am i? unplugged i am glowstick; a light in many colors and shapes  My feet are as smooth as my words 
Dealing Small, fractured bones Dealing Life-changing codes Dealing Broken homes Dealing Depression grows   Overcoming Healing wounds Overcoming Death assumed
I am a mirror. I reflect the look of others. Even with no influence I am never blank. Elusive, colorless, sharp I sit there and stare until one day I shatter
It's a wonder that I have survived so long without your help. How it is possible, I have no idea. Maybe it's my willpower or my lifestyle. Watever the cause, I am having fun with no you in my life.
Light feet beat out the rhythm lodged within the recesses of her wild mind,bringing to lifethe sweet melodiesof Mother Earth.Soft lips sing the truth of the world
Her eyes sparkled like onyx But her head was bald She walked slow but steady Wasn't sure about life but she was ready And she  Was beautiful He lost half his face in the blast
As I pick up my violin, And rosin the bow, I feel ready to let the music free, One small note, Then a scale, One by one, The notes fly, And when the last note turns to mute,
as she wakes up
Bullies and parents put me down
I wake up every morning asking myself Is that really you? Why was I born this way? all these flaws I see in the mirror looking at myself could I change these flaws?
There was this little boy Who was born Who was born with some troubles
pain fills my chest as I remember when you layed on my breasts   It kills me to walk this way, the way we went when you were bae.   For 3 years I called you mine.
Backbone made of brick she towers over the chaotic terrain
My hair my nails my tan? All rockin'! But how might you ask is my body not shockin'?
All in all, you're just a brick in the wall But without you they all fall.
Why am I kickass?  My grades are quite high, for me the girls would die, I've got luscious brown hair,  when you're older you'll care, I jump high for my heighth also, I'm white.
I love you with a love not unprofound But so gentle, tender, kind That when the full force hits you You don’t move an inch.   Like a gentle breeze it lifts your hair And its tendrils make you smile
"Look in the mirror and tell yourself you're beautiful' . I'd repeat it. Look in the mirror and say " I love you". I'd try , but nothing would  come out . I'd go mute. I spent most of my life trying to hide myself.
You reached for my hand to pull me up To the very top so I could see All the mountains and beautiful greenery.  I had never done a thing so dangerous.   As I looked out over the small mountain town,
Wear your cown you've earned it Show you're pride is burning Let no one tear you down Show your colors to the crowd Walk your walk  Strut your stuff  Shout your talk Show them you're Tough
When hearts are breaking and feelings are getting removed, what else is left to do but put the pedal to the medal and say no love no love. Why else would I stay or why else would you leave?
Why must we sustain ourselves and reframe ourselves to bes the perfect image of what others defines as perfect?
I am strong
I am tough and I am strong but at times its not like that at all. There's a girl who gives a shit behind this wall and very few people walk through it.
I am strong. I can stand tall and proud. I can tak care of myself. I can do anything. I can be anything. I can take on the world all on my own. I am an independent woman dammit.
I am 1 out of 7,207,810,299 simply because I am human.
The beauty of love, Is that it cannot be sought, It cannot be tracked, It can only be found, Sometimes in the most unlikely of places
       This is something I ask myself every now and then! They told my parents “She has ADHD”. In private school there is no help for this.
They tell me who I am, What I should be like, What I will do. They don’t understand.
I'm no Barbie.But I Thought I Should be.Compared myselfTo girls of the Barbie standard.Hurt myselfThinking all about'perfection'.
This is my peom about how I feel, I never realized how hard itd be to peel, back all the visual standards to better reveal. My inner desires, thoughts turning my wheel. Well here I am, and this is what I'll say,  
Im not afraid to show it, I dont care if people know it. I love myself. Ive taught myself to think it, I live, breathe, drink it. I love myself. Mirrors use to make me cry, now I dont even have to try. I love myself.
I ask you not to stare when I walk by, So look into my eyes where beauty lies, Some people’s comments make me want to cry,
Dear Artists,   We all have 3 common grounds of expressions   I. One common idea to keep our feets grounded while the rest of our heads wandering in the universe Because we artists are the universe
Why does the wind blow on the other side? Feeling as if I'm trapped in my own of forgetfullness
My girls are beautiful Yes, more beautiful than just what they see in the mirror   My girls are special
Writing you this poem reflects my lovemakes you doubt, it’s hard to concealAccused to things that’s hard to dealso please erase the doubts above. Trust is like freeing a dove
I have always admired the strong.   We as a whole have been taught to idolize those who can carry the burden of thousands and manage to exert unimaginable strength in pulling the corners of their lips into a smile.
Abrasive and Bawdy, Calamitous, Determined, Explosive, Fun, Gaudy. At first glance I am so self-assured, 
When I'm on the diamond I feel at home When I'm on the diamond It's my own little dome. When I'm on the diamond I become very calm When I'm on the diamond I need no balm.
They’ll try to hold you down, you know, That’s just how these things go.   The failures will only help you grow, That’s just how these things go.  
World i cant count you, but you got this tendency of wanting me to be down for you, maybe im just lazy, Whitney get your shit together, you and these bitches you counting On, yall aint gone be shit together, sorry for the cursing but I'm telling
The words fat and ugly race through my mind Am I really what they say the inner demons say yes the angels say no Maybe I am those things and have reached a breaking point
the way you move your  body is so fly  and you know what I like u and you like me you know you want   me so come and get me I know you  because you say I,m fly , yousay you want to kiss me
Feeling upbeat like the rhythm of pop
From the outside looking in, everything was alright Mommy was happy, Daddy held her tight Everyone worked hard, everyone did smile, We were all happy, at least for this little while.  
You killed my confidence and left me crawling— Not that I was old enough to know before That it’s okay to love myself and someone else At the same time with nothing to be sorry for.  
Middle Tennessee State University holds me strong, In its arms, I can see my future career can't go wrong. Down in the south, I find my passion, love, and knowledge,
I walk around the world, confused as a youth, I wonna be successful,
I am here to tell you how it can be done. I was a woman who was unhappy with the size of her waist. I was ashamed.  Flabbergasted of how much time was wasted not caring.
Often i find myself staring at the stars, and glazing upon the moonKnowing that theres more upon the world than we could ever knowCan it be the glazing stars that gives me hope to dream
Just like a clock i stand there Watching, waiting, judging. Hopeful that maybe one day you'll look at me and not in angst or anger. Maybe one day you'll hear my ticking as calming gesture
Look where I am now You showed me how to love myself You gave me support  You were there when I told my mom the truth You broke my heart School is starting and i'm a mess
I knew a girl Weak, unhappy Angered at who she was Obsessed with who she was not I knew a girl Who had beautiful thighs But hated them for their size Then one day she put a weight in her hand
My pointy flats hit the grass and I own the world. I'm free to be a woman and I'm free to become an even greater person than you expect me to be. 
The shadow s
Thrown into life with no say; born to a mother in a high school daze who’s only direction was the bottle of hard A – “adult juice”. A father who gambled – and lost –
Roots that dig deep; as far as the eyes can't see Kind as the wind, old as a tree Love that builds life A Trifiling adventure  Family builds and breaks all, wary as you enter
With every sip of you, I swallowed too much I sank in your sadness, I drowned in your love and with every bottle, I became overwhelmed
People walk into your life And then vanish instantly But they don’t see the price Which happens consistently   They touch someone in a way And become part of them But then they just walk away
I am a rose with a thorn, left with no feeling or soul. So you might think? This rose has fought Depression, and still here stranding strong.   I have my thorns sticking out firm.
The clouds are billowing overhead
5 months into this foste care          Life is a struggle, it just ain't fair           All I want is to live with my mom and dad        SO they can finally give me the life I never had         I want to get away from all of this      Liike these
Look at me and tell me what you see. A young black educated male is what I hope you perceive me to be.  I have God beside me, my parents behind me and my family around me and I’m going to strive to be all that I can be.
Look at me and tell me what you see. A young black educated male is what I hope you perceive me to be.  I have God beside me, my parents behind me and my family around me and I’m going to strive to be all that I can be.
My love you have grown, my love you have shown, shown that you are fine without me.   My dear you stay sweet, my dear you're on your own two feet, experiencing a world without me.  
Her heart is slowly dying. Her scars grow deeper and deeper. As she is no longer trying. Only watching the calamity beat her.   The fire surrounds her soul. She can no longer breathe, just take it in.
Grasp firmly unto who you are and never let go, Life is filled with bumpy roads. People will lift you up and slam you down. Friends will pretend in the light and scheme on the low.
Did you ever really care Or I am an element forgotten like air. Did you ever claim me as yours
The strongest man endures the darkest days But to endure does not mean that he simply Takes And

  It was an instant goodbye I began to cry I lost a friend  Oh Dear God, why?  
You want to love me? Prove to me your ability. I'm stronger than most men, You think you can handle me? Ha, prove it to me. Push me against the wall, Rub you rough hands Against my soft skin.
Peel back the layersand look inside; deep in the abyss you will find.   A little spark a lovely note; some most have but others hope.   When all that's left

It's time to focus Lehne. Get in the racing mindset. Ports one foot in, and down. I sit and strap in as fast as I can Port oars across. Bow take a stroke. Weigh enough. Focus
I still hold onto you like a newborn baby to his mother. Stuck to you like rain in the clouds You are my heartbeat, although, I should let go I cannot let go on what's been with me for so long
Anastasia LeBlanc     Fuck Everything? Fuck this.
Today I fight my inner demons. I stand tall and strong, and face up to them. I look them in the eye, and say clear, concise, and confidently, "You can't control me."
A muscle to a word A feeling you never heard My power is broken For there are times when I am choking The full body strain To all the mental pain I have the sight But I have lost the light

It was in that ineffable moment, the blinding glare from the spotlight above struck her eyes, the bottom portion of her crimson gown brushed against her ankles and the stage, shimmering in the light. 
Is it having big arms? Being ready to face every and all alarms? Or is it having the power to hold it in? Not worried if you ever win. Is it the ability to hold that wieght up high? Or never being afraid to die?
You are a coward. A coward with temptations, That you could not resist The evil damnations. That leave my stomach in a twist.   Why did you do it? You said you loved me more.
Music might help with it's melodies, However it is still has no effect, Still there are no remedies. Just songs to select.   Some might say it is a cure. Some might say it is a place.

I'm just a girl With a withered past and blurry future. I can't tell you much about where I come from.. At least not when you ask about ym parents. All I know is my dad's black, I'm a bastard child.

Please don't be angry, Please don't be mad,
I'll be standing till i get hurt I will NOT fall. They tried to shut me down but I didn't let them They tried to make me hate myself  but I keep trusting myself I AM STRONG....
It is you that I am missing. All of your hugs, as well as your kissing. We were once so tight, so close, The new distance between us binds me in ropes.   The love is still there, I hope you know,
That wilted flower of mine, patiently sitting on the windowsill. Began to take hue and form Slowly peaking were the bright petals.

Heavy fog on rainy days
First day of high-school and you are roaming the halls There is no one around, no one to call. You hear the popular girls laughing at you to your right  But you don't even care, they dont even bite.

It doesn't matter what you say, It doesn't matter what you call me, I will continue on. You can't control me, and I don't need you, I will continue on. You're through with me?
Say what you want and think whatever, But I promise you that I will never Change who I am or who I'm going to be. I am who I am, take me or leave me. Stereotype this and that. It's a dare.

You can tell she has a heart of gold. Outside it appears to be the opposite. She refuses to rise above the struggle. She refuses to take help from anyone. It hurts me to see her stay stagnant,

How do I bear the pain of the world? 
We hold a high position.Standing with a strong attitude in the way we walk and talk.No man will respect the women who can’t run her own race, but every man will respect the woman who can hold her own.
Through this tiny journey, A game as some may call it,  We fall over cracks, Trip over mistakes, Fail while achieving, And make faults within perfection, But it is just the nature of mankind.
She never gave up on me,even when I deserved it. She stood by me and protected me. I love her for it unconditionally. The woman who sacrifices her heart and her soul to always make sure my life feels whole.
Who we are is who we will be The only one to change that is the voice inside of me The voice telling you right from wrong The voice telling you that you don't belong

There's pain in my vains still this day, cant explain how you put me to shame. Saw me as a broken love, didn't give me a chance to undercover the talent that was given 
Bags under her eyes, but ever alert Sleep was a luxury she can't afford. Always moving and never staying long Trying to look to the future, but the darkness of the past blocks her way.

  I am so sorry That my eyes are dark brown with an added twinkle I am so sorry
  What is this, that falls from my face This wetness. This pain. This glory. This confusion. This worry. This scariness.
Things that were so large now seem like nothing at all When residents leave their shelters they can't help but fall Material possessions that used to mean so much Now they just need a loving touch.
They don't kow the tears I cry, They don't know the life I have, I have wings and I can fly, Going by my own path. I seem weak, But I am strong, Very sweetly meek, But not for long.

In all adversity, I shall always thrive, And without you here, I will shine. You will not stop me for I am still alive. My heart and my soul will be kept mine.

Black tux, blue tie; dyed to match his eyes, two groomsmen by his side. I look up and see a tear upon his cheek, when I meet his eyes we are both surprised to see each other finally, because we are meant to be.
I don't want this leading down the same road. Where I stick a gun in my mouth and you smile...again Like the loneliness was just a phase. The sad thing is, there wasn't a day I wished I wasn't dead.
A woman should be treated As she is a queen, Kiss and tell her you love her. Tell her you’re the pretties’ thing, Comfort her when she’s in her weakest links, Put your arms around her,
The smile on your face And the look in your eyes Made me freeze up on the spot And turn to ice. The spell of your speech And the charm of your texts Put me on guard, right away I locked my heart

These bones are weak. They are frail and wispy. They are fractured, snapping as they break.
Find me the definition of STRONG. Let it be the wind underneath my wings. Let it fill me up and pour out. Help me understand STRONG. I cannot afford to be anything but.
Silent tears fall streaming down my face rushing over your shoulder and breaking at you from within. You watched the pain in my eyes my voice and my body
When you are a child you idolize people who strike the hope in you And fill the vacant light inside your empty shell You build them castles to rule, and give them victories, and name them kings, queens, and Gods
It is times like this when men we see, Our fragile broken destinies. When through false strength and proud façade, Appears the pea beneath the pod. It’s times like these as men we know,

Her heart is one of a kind. The only star out of a thousand night skies that could completely knock me to my knees. She's beautiful. A work of art. Her eyes, her skin, her words I breath in.

Tossed in the air, how's it gonna fall? sometimes two options are easier than all, but you never really understand, the power is out of your hands I can still hear the sound of the echo
From milk to yogurt it went, Doubling the traps everyday, Like rat trapped in the edge Wishing to be somewhere else; Becoming an ocean of tears Where a little hole in the wall Gets smaller every second
I’m not a damsel in distress Nor a fucking princess I didn’t lose my shoe Even if I did I don’t need you I don’t live with seven men And for that, Amen! I am not in love with a beast

I was once untouchable, until he touched me and took everything. All he had to do was lift a finger to cast my soul dead. Tears would not flow but blood would shed because We were no longer equal.

Sometimes relationships can be difficult. Trying to work things out might not come clean. All the drama and arguments is nothing new. Everyday is just another bad day. People always have feelings for each other.

Awake, alive, running to have a chase; Dim forest peels back branches binding light Allowing shadows lurch across my face As the feet reach to more ground for my flight

You know, I was upset from everything that I read All I saw was red, when I made myself bled, bled, Bleed 'til I die But I don't want to die, I've been blessed with this life, I need to stay alive

You're a wingless bird; oh, how absurd But nonetheless, you're still in the air You're a letter-less word that could never be heard But somehow, you're still there You're a petal-less flower wilting by the hour
Learned words like dope, hard, real, and some mo'. Heard from cats like Malcom, Martin, eras of passion, pain, and coke. Hip Hop taught me too never give up, hold your head steady.
