To be completely honest with you, this was actually written for this contest I did on allpoetry but however, this does include some of my own experience. As you all know, it's rare for someone to have a 'good first day' in high-school but for me as someone who hasn't been accustomed to a different culture and society, it was entirely horrible. I was emotionally let down because I felt out of place, and nobody volunteered to talk to me. And during History, someone made a comment about how I don't belong there which I found out to be very offensive. Therefore, I just sort of took all of these and transmitted it into my poems - one being this. Anyway, things got better for me over time. :) Once again, thank you.

Thank you for commenting and for your generosity. I kindly appreciate it. :) This poem is inspired by my past. At some point in life, I let my own depression get the best of me and I couldn't move on while I felt that the others were leaving me behind. Everything didn't feel right. It was breaking me apart and I began to fear the sudden changes around me, as well as my own life. However, slowly over time, I learnt to accept change. I began to learn how to let go and appreciate more of life. I also wrote another poem, The Challenge of Life, just to constantly remind myself of the important points I've learnt so far and just to keep others including myself that they need to stay motivated and believe in hope
