A Whole Different Story

by PinkyPrincess   Jul 27, 2009


Outside,
I am perfectly happy.
Inside,
There's a whole different story.

Outside,
I help everyone.
Inside,
I seek for help that I can't find.

Outside,
I'm smiling and laughing.
Inside,
I'm crying endlessly.

Outside,
I am as strong as a stallion.
Inside,
I am as weak as a feather.

Outside,
I am everyone's friend.
Inside,
I'm all alone.

Outside,
I conceal my feelings.
Inside,
My feelings are dying to escape.

Outside,
I'm enthusiastic and optimistic.
But on the inside,
There's a whole different story.

    The first two things I noticed here was the title and the difference in and outside. This is a very unique poem by far.

    The way you started out is really good as it shows howyou hide your true feelings. I love how much I relate to this and I think everyone can. You can show a ssmile and inside no one truly knows what you are going through. Your heart os breaking but you show happiness. I think Its easy to help people when you have been through so much. It's hard to show people how you really feel inside though. Thats why we have our own outlits like writing. You want help but sometimes the best help to help others.

    I love the smiling and laugh as it shows how much it is hard to hide sometimes. You don't want to show people how you are feeling because you feel like they will judge you and push you away. Inside your heart cries because you don't know what to do. You want to be honest but its tiring trying to fight yourself. I love how you say you are a stallion. They are truly majesticand strong. I love how you ddescribe yourself as such. A feather is weak and fragile so that makes so many details to show how much you hurt inside. You are fragile and broken.

    I understand you are everyones friend because its easy to make friends when you are positive and happy. But Ialso uunderstand that when with friends you feel so alone no matter who you are with. You conceal your feelings because you don't want to worry your friends and be a burden. You want help so thats why you want your feelings to show. Its conflicting I know this well. I love the ending as it shows two different sides and throughout the whole poem. I love seeing the difference s here great write! 5/5

    The idea is great. and the poem is a sad poem no doubt. but i personally think that two main words "inside" and outside are used at wrong places. just imagine for a one second if u use the "outside" word on to the word "inside". and the "inside word on to the "outside". this poem would be more good and sad. i rate it 4.
