No One Knows

I am alone.

Do you know what it feels like?

To be abandoned.

I do.
My mother didn’t want me.

Now, I’m around all these people

Who don’t get me.

I feel so



No one knows what I go home to.

My father, my mother.

Nowhere to be


They say that there always there,

But are they really?

I feel like a little kid,

Playing hide and seek!

And I can’t find them anywhere.

My mother works,

My father drinks.


Yes, my father is home.

With a beer in his left hand,

And a cigarette in his right


I look around this school.

I see all these


Do they feel like I do?

Does anyone know how I feel inside?

My body feel as if

It’s about to Crumble.

My father stumbles around the house


My mother,

She doesn’t know what it’s like.

Neither of them know

How I truly feel.

This place that I live in

Is no


Maybe that’s why,

I feel so
