How can you feel so alone
when surrounded by so many
people who call themselves your friends.
How do you want
so much more than you already have.
How can you see the world
than more than just life,
More than something that just moves on.
How do you live
when you feel like you have no purpose.
How can you pretend
to be happy,
when inside you feel empty and dark.
How do you feel unloved
when so many look up to you.
How can you love someone
love them more than you love yourself.
How do you put on a mask,
one that covers who you really are.
How can you wake up everyday for someone that isn't yourself?
