Our Own Little Barriers And Layers

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while. I went to visit my mom – who’s on deployment – and had not much internet access.

I have a barrier to protect myself from the world. Or at least, I used to. A barrier is what you use to protect your emotions, one of my old friends told me.
There’s a lot of problems in the world that most of the time, most of us don’t want to see. A lot of times, people say things that hurt us mentally or emotionally. Inside a barrier, we could remained untouched.

Or so we liked to think.

Also, barriers could keep people from seeing the real you, just how layers work, too. If you’re someone like me, who has a lot of layers, then it’s awfully easy to be misunderstood, or thought to be a bad person when – in the inside – we’re really good people.

People, everybody, needs to stop looking at the most few outer layers. There are too many layers to count, and the outer ones aren’t who we really are.

 

That Little Girl (another poem, some people said it was my best ever)

See that little girl?
She reminds me
Of someone of the past,
Another little girl,
A girl with a bright future.

You know that little girl?
She never knew how
She affected so many
Other people who
Knew she had a bright future.

Remember that little girl?
She’s still here, in our
Hearts, forever. She’s also
Talking to you now, and she
Never knew she would have a bright future.

See that little girl?
She is so different,
Yet she’s the same,
She knows you, as I know you,
She’s not another girl,
We’re the same girl of the same future.

You know that little girl?
She had dreams, so many
Dreams, some would take her
So far away, and would
Show her a bright future.

Remember that little girl?
She cried herself to sleep
So many nights. She never
Wanted to be perfect, but some
People think that, and of her bright future.

See that little girl?
She reminds me
Of someone of the past,
Another little girl,
A girl with a bright future.

You know that little girl?
She thought she was so little,
So unimportant, so useless,
Why did no one tell her otherwise?
She almost thought, really almost
Thought she wouldn’t have a bright future.

Remember that little girl?
She’s still here with you,
She may seem so grown up,
But just watch and listen,
She still has to have a bright future.

See that little girl?
She reminds me
Of someone of the past,
Another little girl,
A girl with a bright future.

You know that little girl?
She thought she was nothing.
She once thought life was pointless.
If only we could go back into the past,
And tell her that she has a bright future.

Remember that little girl?
She wants to know if you,
Yes, you, believe in magic.
Magic has happened to her already,
And showed her she has a bright future.

See that little girl?
She reminds me
Of someone of the past,
Another little girl,
A girl with a bright future.

You know that little girl?
She never knew how
She affected so many
Other people who
Knew she had a bright future.
