Loneliness

Dear Loneliness,

 

You are with me everyday

With no friends, you are the only one

There is nothing I can say

It seems as if I have no one

 

It’s hard for me to connect

No one feels the way I do

They only know how to expect

 

I feel the pain of the world

I weep for those dying alone

But I cannot do anything

For I am only me

 

I don’t want to live for the money

I don’t want to party with strangers

I want to comfort the lonely

I want to be the changer

 

I want to heal

I want to shape

I want to create

I want to innovate

 

But you, loneliness, control me

You capture me in your darkness

I cannot be the person I deserve to be

I am left in the stillness

 

I deserve more than this

 

I deserve the love I give

I deserve the calmness I spread

I deserve to live

 

With myself

I will rise

I will show my true self

I will be the sunrise

 

Although I don't have many friends

I will not let you beat me down

 

I will push myself to talk with others

To see things from their view

To prove my wonders

To see them through

 

You may be the only thing I have now

But soon, I will be myself

I will get rid of you anyhow

I will prove myself

 

It will be tough

I will give up sometimes

But sure enough

I will get up a thousand times

 

I will be my beautiful, silly, weird, different, nerdy, glitter-loving, book-reading, Hogwarts-wishing self again.

 

Sincerely,

Me
