Poem -

Expressive

Lips chapped
Hair a mess
My mind is trapped
Plagued with stress

With youth I canโ€™t express
My emotions like the rest
I profess
Iโ€™ve kept it supressed

I canโ€™t tell the differenceย 
between the ocean and skyย 
With no deference for meย 
I often wonder why

Why Iโ€™m blessedย 
Yet still kept opressed
Offered support
But my mind thwarts
ย

Chillingly painful.. beautifully expressed! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ

This poem seems to be a crowd favourite, and I can tell why!
This made me feel like a little turtle hugging itself by the shoreline, looking around confusedly at the people who are peering at it in wonder.
So, in shorter words, this is one of your snazziest,ย heartbreaking, gnarliestย work yet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Gotta take my hat off to you, Samsung!
