13 Reasons Why- Hannah’s Poem

“What if I can’t hum on key?
What if my melodies are the ones nobody hears?
Some people can recognize a tree,
a front yard, and know they’ve made it home.”

“How many circles can I walk in
before I give up looking?
How long before I’m lost for good?
It must be possible to swim
in the ocean of the one you love
without drowning.

It must be possible to swim
without becoming water yourself.
But I keep swallowing
what I thought was air.

I keep finding stones tied to my feet.”
