The Inside Whirl
By Cheyenne Cuthbertson
I write all my pieces about something that affects me in life. This one is about emotions and how they feel.
To live with yourself Is like living with A thousand people The swirl and whirl of thoughts Racing through your mind Racing down the track Down the streets of Manhattan Emotions are those people They surround you They are everywhere and nowhere Your friends and your enemies They keep your secrets Alone and isolated in your head Cold but warm at the same time Happy and scared and fearful The outcome alone.
