Do you ever feel alone?
Like the world is on your back,
but you have no one to bear it with you.
And you struggle and struggle,
but you can't fight it on your own.
Then someone comes
and helps you lift that weight,
but they're gone just as fast,
and now you're on your knees
begging for anyone,
to hear your cry.
You just want someone to recognize you,
recognize your existence.
You want someone to love you back.
Instead of being so alone.
Maybe someone will see you?
Maybe they'll stop and go, hey,
Maybe they will look you in the eyes
instead of at the rest of the mask you put up.
Maybe someone will care.
Care enough to say hello
and find out if you are okay.
Someone will say hi.
Someone will ask
But before then,
all you have to do is
bear being alone.
