Refusing to Engage in anything that might Soothe those parts Inside who are Scared and Terrified of Anyone on the outside knowing that we're Nobody special Cuz all that we are is Everyone's trash

Nice acrostic Mandie with a sorrowful message that could apply to many. Everyone is born with self-esteem, unfortunately somewhere along the road "others" can/will damage the minds of beautiful people who have every reason to know they are worth so much more. Good poem, blessings, Deni

Mandie, a powerful look at a personal disturbance. As for style, it suits the subject, as to the turmoil buried in the piece- obviously volumes could be written. What I take away from reading this is such a low esteem issue, where "we're nobody special" that it tears at the heart of the reader. The inverse, that is, "everyone is someone special" is accented in a black to white manner; though unspoken and in this context, contested. A dark energy in this well written piece.

Hi Mandie, I didn't know you were in the hospital and hope you are better now. This is dark poem that goes beyond melancholy. I can't imagine what happened in life to think one is everyone's trash. It would have to be a defeating event that is difficult to recover from or forget. You have made expressive word choices and even though short it is a powerful poem. Well done. Best wishes, cheyenne
