Finding Hope

Lindsey Duran Guillen, 7th Grade Leland Middle School


Each day passes by

Struggling to find motivation and hope

I can’t even see myself anymore

Always settling with the pain

Instead of seeking happiness

There is just one solution


It’s to find it in such a horrible place

Why do I even stay

I’ve been waiting too long

Maybe I will be stronger

But these scars remind me

I’m too fragile

There is no place for me here anymore
