Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Not Easy

[ Edited ]

My life isn't easy, getting teased and bulled

Everyone around me seemed so pleased

 

I tried to get away from the pain

But it seems insane

 

To forget all of this

To never feel like I should miss it

 

They steal away my soul

And leave me with a big hole

 

Should I just die?

I sigh at the thought

 

For it would leave nothing

Just a huff of air and no one would care

 

(I just thought of it right now. So post whatever you want. I'm open to anything =P)

Re: Not Easy

This is a very sad poem. I really hope that it is not about you. Everyone deserves more than to be bullied. However, I do feel like it would relate to a lot of adolescents. It was written very well and caught my attention as a reader.

Re: Not Easy

Thanks so much =) I love feedback! xD The truth is the poem is about me and I've never really written poems about myself, so I wanted to try it for once and this is what came up. =P So thank you so much again for your comments I really do appreciate them =)

Hey! This is really well done! Its very well true-sounding (or something like that) or like real. I enjoyed reading it.
