I look out

From the inside -

A shell made hard by

Years of isolation.

I fear aloneness,

Yet cannot break through.

I see

People laugh and smile;

Among friends

I long to be part

of their group,

Yearn for freedom.

I feel hurt

And retreat back

Into myself of Safety.

The outside looks in,

But sees nothing.

GK - written in mid-teens.
