Stand Alone

Mon, 09/23/2019 - 18:53 -- I'mduh1

Nobody will save you
Your friends are miles away
Your family is busy again
Your mentors don't exist
Not gonna lie, this is shit

It's kinda funny how when being lonely
You can be surrounded by people and still feel alone

Nobody will understand you
Sheltered
Quiet
Your Small
And Awkward
And even if someone likes you
They'll never stand by you

Feel that? The absence of warmth?
It's suffocating, intoxicating, and just too much.
Yet, you've been here before.

You were always the last one picked
You were never the one who had it
You survived the onslaught of others
You survived the coldness of solitude

This isn't a curse
It's a superpower
While others huddle together
You stand alone

This poem is about: 
Me
