A/N: I was just staring off into space during Spanish class, thinking random thoughts, and then I started thinking about myself, trying to decide whether I'm stronger or not as strong as I seem. I guess that's where this poem comes in. As a poem, I don't think it's very good, but, jeez, it's sad. (Written January 11, 2001.)Understanding
I'm not as strong as you think.
I may tell you I'm fine,
Even act like I'm fine,
But I really need some help.
I need someone who's always there for me,
And will always understand,
But sometimes, there's no one like that around,
And I won't settle for someone who'll just do.
When I hide, I'm afraid,
Because I have no one to trust.
There's no one around
That I feel will understand.
So, please, make an effort to understand,
And I'll appreciate you forever,
And whatever you do, don't leave me,
Just stay here, because you'll always understand.
