Knowing – Poem

Virginia Bates

The world can be a scary place 

Emotions have a different meaning 

When everything’s changed

But some people say that when with your friends are by your side

So why am I still crying 

my eyes out,

Why am I not happy 

like everyone else,

Knowing that I am down

Sitting alone 

No cares

Eating slow

No one knows

What’s happening with my life

I ask myself 

What is my purpose?

Why was I born?

Where do belong?

Nobody helps me

Nobody sees me

Nobody needs me

So I’ll just go
