I am a feeling

Trapped in a shell.

A shell of confusion.

A shell of despair.

A shell of a teenage girl.

A girl who’s confused,

Depressed and trapped.

Trapped in a shell

All its own.

Its own name, identity,

Even own feelings.

How do I get out,

How does she break free

From this measly, tiny shell?

This was my first published piece which was printed in an anthology when I was a teenager which I was convinced was a sign of what was yet to come.
