Why the Secret Tragedy Cries
There are things I have always known...I always knew I was special...I always knew I'd be something great...When the teacher asked our class how many of us were likely to make it big, when all the other kids answered"not likely", I knew that wasn't true for me...I knew making it big was very possible for me...I knew this ever since I could remember...
But there is something else I always knew...I always knew there was something wrong with me...I knew along with my luck of being naturally talented that I had one huge flaw...
I was just simply a tragedy...I have always been scared to get close to people, because I know they'll soon find my flaws...They'll soon know the real secret tragedy I am...They'll soon know I'm not as perfect as I seem...These are things I always knew since I was small...I know how messed up I really am...And I am very careful not to let it show at first glance...Because I love my friends and dear ones too much to let them see and run...But I must let them go eventually...Because I know they are too good for me to keep...As much as I want to keep them...I know eventually I must let them go...
I know the messed up part of me that I can't hide for very long...I know I am desined to be hated and alone...I know I can't doom them to be with a tragedy like me...So eventually the bond must end and leave me they must...But I still try to keep them for as long as I can...
But things I don't know are if I am clever enough to fool people for very long...Will I be able to keep their love for as long as I wish?...Or will I eventually loose them like I always do?...With my struck of good luck, unfortunately came a struck of bad luck...And I can barely keep my luck in balance...Bad things always happen to me at the worst possible moment...And then I loose those I love and care about...Because that's when they see the real shameful mess that I truely I am...This I have always known...
This is why the secret tragedy cries at night...Because she knows she must be alone...
Author's Notes:

These really are things I have always known ever since I can remember. It's just an intuition I've always had.

Awesome! These lines might be written with pen but with the ink of feelings which flowed through your pen. We must let ourselves be original so that others could love what we are.Love means to love both merits and demerits of someone like a mother who loves even those things/habits of her child which are not supposed to be good.                                                                          May you and yours be blessed                                                                                   Ammar Saleem Butt

WOW!!! Ellie this is great. Very vivid emotions and described so well. Tears came to my eyes. Not everyone knows what true love is, or how it even feels. But don't give up hope, because one day it will come when you least expect it. Some people are less fortunate then others, but your flaws are what makes you. What dosen't kill u makes u stronger, so thats why the beaten and the down have to stick together. Great write Ellie!! Your good friend. Toria : )

Wow Ellie what this beautiful essay. I like it so much. it won't only go to my faves I will print it and hang it on the wall of my room to read every sec, hour and day. Every house is having an intense secret. As I noticed the creators are special because they got other way to see things and their vision make of them unsual ones.. My dear You are the best.

Dear Ellie,


Reading your write, I shed some tears! You are not the only one who feels this way! There are so many of us, in the real world ! We have been abused too! I have never had anyone to show me what the real meaning of true love was. Its caused me alot of grief and miserible pain! It started when I was young too! There was only a couple of people taht came into my life who actually helped me to see that I was truly loved for me! " My grandpa, my second mom ( Mrs Lois ). They both set Godly examples before me and showed me God's love clearly! No matter my mistakes within my life, or where I have been! I know that I can do nothing that God will not forgive! I know He loves me and He know's I'm not perfect! None of us are! I do strive hard to be better than I am! I try to give of myself to be His servant and to serve out His mater plan for my life! But even I too, sometimes get caught up with the things of this world, that I lose focus, on what needs to be done! I ask for His forgiveness, and I know because He is such  aloving God, He does forgive me for all my sins! I would like to tell you about someone else too, whom has inspired me to do better! He was a man I once knew, he meant so much to me! Although we could never be together.. the way we once wanted too.. He planted a seed within my life, that helps me to get through any hard situation! He ( K.T.B. ) once told me " that those who dwell on the past, will always live in the past! They will never be able to over come those things of their past!" So with those words, I have over cometh and am better than I once was! If ever you need a true friend to vent too! Just know you are never alone! God and I are never too far away, to give you a helping hand! Maybe a hug to say hey I understand!


I do care about others and pray I can set an godly example.


God Bless You
