Courage

Poem By Elsa Bear

she sits at the edge,
calm and composed on the outside
but shes in a whirlwind of emotions.
stomach in iron knots,
a million butterflies
making their way into her chest.
heart pounding,
hands trembling,
palms sweating,
heady confusion fills her,
making her dizzy.
her eyes scan the sea of faces
they settle on the most important two.
there they sit,
side by side,
proud parents once more.
choking back the tears,
she slowly stands and
crosses that line,
into the spot light.
she takes a deep breath and begins,
because this is what she was born to do.

Her Choice, Her Punishment

a product of misery
she barely survived her childhood.
living on the verge of a breakdown
it takes all her energy not to cry everyday.

My Life

i want to be loved
i want to be held.
i want to feel good
and i want to do well.

Dancing Dreams

blank pages stare back at her
a book full of them
feeling uninspired she sits by her window sill
staring at the trees, the houses, the passersby.

Her Home

photos line her walls
posters, pictures, postcards
torn, ripped, cut, stuck.
finally it feels like home.

A Good Night Out

bleary eyed,
fuzzy headed,
mascara stains from the night before.
lipstick smudges,

I Wish

it was all my fault,
i broke my heart as well as his
i hurt as much as he did.
three times.
