Here’s a poem I wrote in October 2013.

By Holly Roberts

The ground disturbed
I was a mess
Shaking inside. I got broken
Things were broken
I’m no longer the same

I feel older, I proclaimed
Before my innocence got pulled away
Now I know it’s not something you can just say

I dreamt it before and I felt it coming
And I’m still struggling to know
If inner strength can curb my fear

I hear noises in the silence
And I’m afraid to be alone
I’ve always felt freedom
But now I want to be hidden

But my empathy is greater
For those before me
While my imagination runs riot
And I’m too tired to tame it

Life throws curveballs if you get too complacent
So share your love
Laugh everyday
The aftermath will come
And tomorrow’s another day
