People think I’m lonely,
People think I’m sad.
I’ve been called lowly,
I’ve been called mad.

There are worse things
I could be than quiet,
There are more harmful
Things I could do,
Just because I’m different,
Doesn’t mean I’m not right too.

Books are my buddies,
My four walls are my friends.
Green Day are my preachers,
AC/DC are my teachers,
Dancing out of my speakers.

I talk with my pen
And I sing from the soul,
Sometimes it’s diamond bright,
Others, it’s black as coal.

Summer is here,
I can feel it
Sweating into my pores,
And whilst some might go for beaches,
I go for so-called bores.

So when you see someone,
Nose in a book,
With a faraway look,
Don’t pity them;
For they are in their own kind of sunshine.
I haven't attempted poetry in months, so I apologise for the appalling quality of this.

The issue is these kids lock themselves away in these things to avoid going out. "My four walls are my friends", damn that is depressing.

I didn't. It isn't a coincidence that the people that do this are typically socially awkward.

well yeah??? but the point is that it doesnt make them terribly miserable people and everyone has a different way of having fun, whether it's reading alone or hanging out with people ???

They don't lock themselves away in their rooms because it's just so incredibly fun. Stop lying to yourself.

They kinda do. You obviously have other preferences, but I personally relate to this poem because I would have a lot more fun staying inside and drawing than hanging out with my friends.

This is why I can't write for shit, amazing poets like you:) I'll admit, there's nothing I like more during the summer than sitting back in a chair or by a tree, book in hand, listening to music:)

I personally read sitting on a tree branch near my house because it' summer, I stay outdoors. It's a great thing to have forests and mountains near your grandmother's house. I basically disagree with staying indoors when you have how to stay in the nature but I think everyone is free to do everything with their spare time as long as this doesn't harm the others and the respective person assumes consequences.

I pity the ones spending their summer reading between 4 walls because I really think that if all the  people in your group are doing something, they might have some reason you might want to consider. WHen you don't spend enough time with your group you risk to lose the place you struggled getting in the hierarchy. This is the consequence of not staying outdors in summer. Believe me, it happened  once and since then I return from my holidays with the most fascinating stories and darkest skin colour. No offense, please.

Dude (or dudette.) you should keep on trying to relate to people since you'll attract them to the most troubling period of their lives.

I am absolutely in love with this.  This is me in a nutshell.  I love spending summer reading books because I just don't have time to do that during the school year.  

I have to admit, this kind of reminded me of a My Chemical Romance song.  The beginning was a bit MCR heavy for me.  I'm not sure if it's because it's called "Summertime", the fact that I've been missing them a lot lately, or simply because I have "Fake Your Death" on repeat at the moment, but whatever it is, I'm loving it.  It gives me a sort of fuzzy feeling that only the lads can give me.  Well done on that.  

This is far from "appalling quality"!  This is beautiful!  I've missed your poetry, and it is wonderful to see you post again.  :love:

Thank you very much! I plan to spend my summer doing two things; reading and writing! :)

Thinking about My Chemical Romance still makes me cry. I bought a vinyl copy of the 'Fake Your Death' album recently. Oh my god, it nearly killed me.

Thank you! :glomp:

Really nice~ I'm more of an I between person myself, leaning slightly more to the quiet side. I like to be alone sometimes and just read, but hanging out and talking a lot is also me too. I liked this for that ^^

Ha. Love this. My dad picks on me for hating the beech. So I wonder, this is your summer, but is summer your favorite season? Mine is winter. From the weather, the look of the trees and sparking snow, to staying in with a cup of hot chocolate and a book. But the best thing about what you wrote was that you recognized that people can be happy in their own ways. I know so many people who don't realize that. That's why my dad thinks I'm depressed and calls me anti-social. But I could spend all summer quite happily in front of an air conditioner with a good book. :)

I feel the social tide turning against us as more and more people mentally categorize school shooters and the like as "loners." :(

Just remember that serial murderers and rapists are a good bit of the time outgoing and charming . . .
