Poetry

Fight

Never show the pain.
Keep walking.
You’re alive.
Words don’t hurt.

(They do. A lot, but you’re not supposed to know that.)

You are stronger than them.
They are in the wrong
but not enough for
anyone to do anything.
Don’t sink to their level.

(It’s not really sinking. It’s more like switching paths.)

Violence solves nothing.
You cannot stop them,
so do not try.
No one will believe you.

(They won’t, but it hurts knowing that no one does. It’s like no one cares.)

Wounded animals get shot.
Be a doormat.
No one thinks about hurting doormats.

(They don’t really care. You are a wounded animal, hurt and vicious.)

Keep a stiff upper lip.
One day they'll get tired.
Fighting is entertaining them.

(That is a blatant lie. They never stop.)

Violence puts you on their level.
Acting out will help nothing.

(Actually, it helped everything. No one wants to get near a wounded animal.)

Stop caring about how they feel.
They stopped caring about you long ago.
You are not a doormat.
You are a wolf, wounded and vicious.

(You don’t need to be a good little girl. Being that made you hurt and turned you cold.)

Richard D. Cooper: I wish I could write poetry like this. It's clever because it also tells a story, too. I like the flow of it, the way sentences slip together as they should. Very good indeed. I have also started to read your others works, and will review them when finished. Keep going. Never stop.

maxniederhofer: Kara,I loved this. The one suggestion I would make is to show me, don't tell me. E.g."Now look at your skin / It is beautiful / You are beauty pure."It might be better to use more evocative imagery and language to make me feel, i.e. truly comprehend, the pure beauty, rather than telling me it is ...

Shubh Guru: when i'm reading this novel, I remember all my school days, all i feel like i m back to my old days, all the misery come to "bay" and how she come back like a shinning star are so good...this is my first book and i love this because it contains all the thing, love ,betrayl,losing some one who lo...

Barbara Ivusic: I really loved this poem. Perfect use of imagery to outline the digital age. I loved the image of the olive branch and how it is posted for all to see but no one can touch it. Everything you describe is so true that it has become common knowledge yet no one acknowledges it anymore. I look forward...
