How can I?

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?

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.
