You Donít Know Me

You donít know
What itís like to be me
You donít know
My history

You donít know what Iíve been through
You donít know how many friends
Who I thought would be there until the end
Turned out to be the opposite of real and true

You donít know why I cry
You donít know the real Kai.
You donít even bother
To find out about her
You donít know
What itís like to branded
As the lowest of the low
You donít know what itís like to feel abandoned

You donít know me
How do you know what itís like to be
Called things behind your back
Because you supposedly lack
ďPopularityĒ

What do you know
About plain cruelness
What do you know
About feeling less and less
Every single day
What other way
Is there to go, expect rock bottom.
When youíre just being yourself
And not one of them

You donít know what itís like
To be me
To be the only
One who cries late at night?
You donít know me at all
As I continue to fall

I like this poem, and I think I can relate to it on some level, because I've been rejected by many people and have gone through things i don't too many people could understaand, or have ever gone through to the extent I did.

Thanks! ...thats exactly how i feel sometimes. People don't know the things i've been through so they tend to judge or make fun of or ridicule me... I'm glad someone FINALLY gets it!!

Always,
   Kai (a.k.a. precious pearls)

Really nice poem. But if your going to rhyme in your poems make them consistent or in a pattern. It just makes it harder to read if you don't.

I like this poem a lot. I understand what you  mean nobody knows what I am going through right now yet they all seam to think its okay to make fun of me

The number one thing in acting is honesty: If you can fake that you've got it made.

Wow, that was pretty strong.  Yea, some people may ridicule and whatnot, but if your true to yourself, you'll always be ahead of them.  Poem wise, just to make the poem a bit clearer, you might want to make the rhyming more organized.  Other than that, excellent job!  (:

Forever,
Arabesque<3

Like a dove lost in the storm, like a flower discarded to the wind. You are lost in the sea of humanity.

Beautifully captured.

kai, I know this won't make you feel better now~~ but when you are older and go back to class reunions you will find out that  many who were popular then, no longer have that in the "real world" outside of school.

Those who had to work harder, and struggle  become successful in  the  life they choose and are loved or liked and respected for who they are and not who they "hang" with.

So just be the best you, that you can be and  keep your chin up and be proud ( don't try and follow the in crowd)
