When I’m emotional…. by Zoë Karl


The world spins around,
Endlessly turning,
And yet it’s all right there,
In your hands.

Venturing into the unknown,
Your knowledge and wisdom soon expands.
I want to shout, I want to scream
At even my best friend.
But I want their advice and comfort,
A relationship that never ends.

So muddled, confused, angry, sad,
Happy, excited, stressed and mad.
Alone – no friend going through the same thing.
Every comment someone says can really sting.


“Kim, you asked about what I wrote when I’m emotional and this is an example. I hope you like it.”  Zoë
