22 (who?)

A dark sooty tunnel
No sense of light, or end
Sits a young girl, dying
Of her own self misery

A hand reaches with a smile
And pulls her out
Words act like hugs
Her spirit rises

With his words, she returns
She brings back her old truths
What were once memories
She removes from boxes

She’s a new girl
Confident, smiling, laughing
He stands looking at his work
He’ll catch her if she falls

No one recognises this girl
They only recognise her shell
Her soul has returned
She’ll prove them all wrong.

She barely recognises herself
But she’s not alone
She stands strong with a friend
A friend who pieced her back together

A friend, called hope.
I have a friend, he is called hope. (Well he isn't, but that's besides the point)

I wonder what the world will think when I step out in my new strong feet?
(Ooh, that might become a new poem)

I agree with ArtCrusade below my comment! I'd defiantly buy a book you wrote. :D 

In school and outside of school, I've been depressed and abused once in my life when I was all alone and didn't expect it. I was frozen, I panicked and I decided to call for help and when I told my cousin what happened and burst into tears, they did nothing about it. They didn't believe me, they thought I was overreacting, but in school I have a friend. She told me that she would be my life saver, but in high school things changed, I've had breakdowns and people keep crowding around me and I'm in the center of attention! I hate it. But my one friend, I like to think of her as hope. She makes me happy, and when I'm sad or angry she is always there. This made me think about my life when you said the last words in "Hope". Thank you for writing this. :)

If you wrote a book, I would buy it. Even if it was not even published.
