I wrote this poem when I was going through a really bad patch in life. I thought that no one ever understood me and that I was totally different to everyone else. It's not a very long poem, but it's all my feelings in words.

This poem originally was published in Poems on Life - Teen Poems about Life

Difference
There is a part of me
That feels I am different from everyone else.
Something that I can't quite see,
Something that I can't quite feel,
Something so unreal.
But this 'thing' is always there,
This 'thing' with others, I will never share.
So I push it to the back of my mind,
All the thoughts of boys and clothes
And make-up, it is hiding behind.
Sometimes, when I have almost forgotten,
It comes back with such ferocity,
Angry and unforgiving.
I feel so lost and sad,
Whatever caused this feeling
Must have been so horrible and bad.
A lost memory or something else,
I'll never know,
Whatever it is,
I know for sure,
I can never let this feeling show.

    I read this poem when I was looking for poems to put on my away message to express my "sad" mood, if you will. It really touched me, and it made me feel a lot better to know that I am not the only one who feels this way. I think this poem identifies greatly with many teens, and is in general, a great poem. =)

  • sherry
    Your poem reminds me of something I might have wrote quite along time ago. I'm a mother now and feel that sometimes my daughters feel the same way at times. And sometimes not all of the time its best not to know everything. Sometimes our minds block things for a reason. But I do know continue to express your feelings on paper or computer, it will give you peace.

    hey i really loved this poem. i don't know it touched me in an aspect of my life i can't describe. i feel the exact same way. you easily fall into the crowd, forget about your worries and then you soon face them and it is overwhelming. i loved it!
  • Rosa
    I found this poem strongly reflected a part of me, and felt at the very least, that I should let the author know how I appreciate that she took what I felt and put it into written form. I loved it very much.

  • kendall
    i don't even know how to start, to know that someone else thinks these same thoughts makes me sad, but also, in a way, helps me. eventhough i do not know you, you've touched me in a way i can't explain. thank you so much.
  • Brittany
    I believe that this poem relates to my life right now because I just went through a phase of trying to figure out who I really am on the inside and out. I really like the poem, because I felt a sense of relief to know that someone else is going through the same thing that I am going through. Your poem is exactly what I needed to read today. Thank You.

  • myrhh
    this poem is so real and moving, it opens people up and brings them to reality about there true feelings. you have caught the feeling everyone has and tries to ignor, the only thing to rid the pain is by talking to someone who cares, they won't think your crazy, and the only one to replace the empty pain is almighty God, . i know from expirience

  • Alice
    Being a teenager myself I find this poem intriging as it expresses my emotions in a way I never would have been able to. As an artist myself I can appreciate it in all forms be it photograpy, oil, prose or poetry. This is it and if someone should disagree then they've never felt this darkmood that seems to be unexplainable. Yet, you've done it. BRAVO.

  • Quadeisha
    I as a teen understand what this poet is talking about. I have and I'm still going through that situation. I think that the poem was very orignal and true, I love it.
  • melissa
    I really loved your poem! It explains most of what I feel like. Expect for the part where you didn't know why you felt that way. I know what happened to me to make me feel this way. I'm not totally sure of what I'm feeling all of the time, but I always try to cover it up once my friends come around. And right now, it's nearing the day when it happened, and I'm even more depressed than usual and am having a hard time keeping it under control. So, like, as soon as my friends walk away, I'm totally depressed, and sometimes angry when people talk to me when I'm like that. and the worst part, is that I was a total jerk to the guy i like one day when i was feeling really down, so now i probably have even less of a chance of ever going out with him. :(
  • Jannah
    nice!describes my life too!
  • Robert
    you ain't the only one who feels different and alone from others. i think that there r alot of ppl that feels the same way including myself

  • sophie
    This is the best poem i've ever read it touched the heart of many and also myself. I have many things that i hide from others some things i even hide from myself. My life is like a major burden on me and i only being 13 don't really know how to deal with it but at the moment all i need is a sholder to cry on, some one who is going through the same thing, some one who understands.

  • Kristabell
    I know exactly how you feel. I used to have that feeling all the time. i thought i was the only one. It is good to know that I am not, though. I was always happy on the outside, helping others with a smile, but they never noticed i was down. Then, there was this one person, who I confided in, and made it all come out. I still do not know to this day what was gettin me down.

    This poem is amazing. It really shows in words how a teenager feels. Because we all tend to put our feelings behind other things that aren't important. That 'thing' will always be with us though..we just choose not to show it..This poem is great.
