This poem wasn't written based on my own personal thoughts, but I know that these are the things that go through the minds of so many people every single day. This was written to bring awareness to
it.

Alone

 

Forcing myself to stay upright

My blurred eyes find the mirror.

 

I’m repulsed by what I see;

The same face I’ve hated for too long,

The one no one is attracted to,

The one I wish wasn’t my own.

 

My eyes begin to well up as I stand

Face-to-face with my enemy,

The soul that isn’t worth a thing,

Has no real purpose,

No true meaning.

 

I think about the crushing weight of everything,

Living up to everyone’s expectations,

Being perfect

And realize I can’t do it,

Simply because I’m incapable of everything,

And not good enough.

 

When will I ever stop being alone?

I can’t live with myself

Not when I’m the enemy,

The only one I can’t run from.

 

My knuckles come in contact with the glass.

 

The contents of my appearance, shattered,

The pieces of my heart, shattered,

The control of my anger, shattered,

The control of myself, shattered.

 

All that is left now,

Is the loneliness that never stops creeping in.
