A New Hope

Growing up I was bullied a lot. I was never confident in who I was. I would look in a mirror and hated what I saw. The worst part of all of this, I thought I was alone. I had no friends and I was by myself every day. When I was a sophomore I wrote a poem..it goes like this

If you looked in the corner

You’d find her right there.

Hidden by darkness,

And the curls in her hair.

Her nose in a book,

With her head in the clouds,

Hiding her feelings,

Away from the crowds.

If you sat by her side,

While the world passed you by,

She’d tell you the story,

Behind the pain in her eyes.

If you gave her five minutes,

You’d see how her smile,

Makes even the bad things in life seem worthwhile.

But you don’t look in the corner,

You don’t even glance,

So she sits there waiting,

To be given a chance.

I hope you guys liked the poem. How many of you can relate to it or have had a similar experience? It really sucks huh? One thing I’ve learned over the last several years is that it does get better. I know that’s everyone’s least favorite thing to hear, especially when you’re struggling. But I guarantee you it does. At one point in my life, I didn’t know if I could do it. I hated going to school every day, I hated getting up, and doing everything else.

However, I’ve learned that it’s all been worthwhile. I ended up transferring high school’s and the opportunities and experiences I had were incredible. I got to go to NYC for a week! img_2592-1

I was in the highest auditioned choir my senior year and I got to go to the dances and live high school to the fullest.

I wouldn’t change what happened to me at all because I learned and I grew from it. I was fortunate enough to gain friends in high school and I’m lucky enough to call 3 girls my best friends!


If you guys are ever struggling, talk to me or talk to someone you know. If you hang in there, it gets better and there really is light at the end of the tunnel.

Love you guys!
