Loner

“Loner”

I continue to
Try and be
The best person
I can but I’m
Always seen
As inadequate
Or made to feel
As if I’m
Not
Enough

Or as if
The skin
I was born
In is my calling
Card to failure…

I’ve never felt
As if I fit
In or belonged to
This world but
Still I try to
Hold my head up
And press on

But lately within
Myself I’ve been
Losing
The light

Succumbing
To this feel
Of loneliness
Where only I
Know the
Pain
Behind these
Eyes

That no
One cares to
Look…

I thought that
I’d finally found
Myself after so
Long of looking

I thought
Finally someone
Would understand

But now
I know I’ll
Face this
World coldly
Alone

A
Loner

With no
Space

With no
Land.
