No One Knows

I am alone.

Do you know what it feels like?

To be abandoned.

I do.
My mother didn’t want me.

Now, I’m around all these people

Who don’t get me.

I feel so

Alone.

 

No one knows what I go home to.

My father, my mother.

Nowhere to be

Found.

They say that there always there,

But are they really?

I feel like a little kid,

Playing hide and seek!

And I can’t find them anywhere.

My mother works,

My father drinks.

Alone!

Yes, my father is home.

With a beer in his left hand,

And a cigarette in his right

 

I look around this school.

I see all these

Faces.

Do they feel like I do?

Does anyone know how I feel inside?

My body feel as if

It’s about to Crumble.

My father stumbles around the house

Drunk.

My mother,

She doesn’t know what it’s like.

Neither of them know

How I truly feel.

This place that I live in

Is no

Home.

Maybe that’s why,

I feel so

Alone.
