I’m that trickle down your neck last week when you got upset.
That friend you’ve never met;
That kid you teased for being a teachers pet.
That kid who stays quiet when you get on his nerves;
The one  who never got picked first;
The best at being last; Never been late for class; never got noticed for staying on task.
Know that’s there’s something special about being different.
I can’t explain it; not sure if it’s a gift or curse. It’s
Something about it makes me want to pick up a pen and write verses.
I feel like maybe God entrusted this mission to us; something more than Church.
Something more than the outside can comprehend and so we lock ourselves in a hurricane.
To bring tears to its eye; Teen angst at its worst.
But before sunshine; the storm will always be first.
Life’s a game of stamina. Do you have the strength to run?
Life’s a game of stamina. Do you have the strength to run?

This is dedicated to the scars on every teen’s wrist they’ll never show.
Dedicated to the ones who are never shown.  
Who stay in the back on the classroom.
Dedicated to the ones without voices; the ugly. The hated. Fat. The faggots. Emo.
Just know. I’m here for all of you.
Even though I’ll never truly know what you've been through,
Thank you for breathing.
A quick (crappy) poem I wrote at around 2 in the morning. I'll make a more polished version of this one day...

I also did a recording of it which you find here: [link]

Then if your a weirdo and like it you can download it here: [link]

Well, the more people that feel that way, the better off everyone is, and the more likely people will progress to that train of thought.
It's something that will take time, but maybe one day.

I like this a lot. There's caring and observing and identification in your poem.

I'm impressed with your rhyming, though I think free verse might be better for you, with its more relaxed of format.

You love words, and the precision of meaning, that's clear. You do very well at using precise the words to convey your meaning, and that's what a poet strives to do.

You got game!

DylanSeto Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2013  Student Artist
Thanks, it means a lot

..and I agree I'm more a free-verse person, I hate the restrictions of specific styles of poetry. Spoken word though is where my hearts at right now, it could as free or as rigid as the writer likes and the a performance aspect of spoken word is just really engaging to me.

don't you hate that inspiration always comes in the middle of the night when you're too tired to get it to come out right :grump: stupid need for sleep.
Reply
:icondylanseto:
DylanSeto Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2013  Student Artist
What's this sleep you speak of? ;)

No but seriously, the reason for it being no as great as I would like is more because I was rushed to get something out by this week, and so there was a lack of editing/re-writing rather than because I was half asleep, though it probably did play a factor in it as well.
