How can the world be so big,
Yet I feel so small?

How can there be so many people,
Yet I feel so alone?

How can so many people say they love me,
Yet I feel so far from it?

How can everyone live on the same planet,
Yet I feel I’m in a different universe?

How can I seem so happy,
Yet feel so depressed?

How can I stand to sit here,
Yet what I really want to do is stand?

Never compare your life with others, as you have no idea what their journey is all about.

nice way to express your feelings. To my surprise i've felt the same things so many times and still do. I thought i was alone.

I love how universal this is!! You really hit the nail on the head so to speak about that feeling we all experience :)
