On My Own

By , schuylkill haven, PA
Alone.
Nobody’s here to help.
How can I get past this?

Waiting for something,
Anything really.
A sign maybe.

There’s nothing worth waiting for now.
I’ll just leave.
There’s nothing left to do.

Then maybe,
Just maybe,
Everyone else will have a chance.

I don’t know how to start.
Where to go.
Where to stay.

Nobody wants me,
But that’s just my luck.

I wish it wouldn’t have to come to this.
But nobody seems to care.

I’m lost in this world.
I really am.

There’s no sense in waiting.
I’ve been doing that my whole life.

I guess I have two choices:
Should I stay?
Or leave?

PLEASE STAY!!!  I love this poem...but I really hope the meaning is NOT true!!!  I live very close to Schuylkill Haven (as it says at the top of the poem) so please just let me know if you need to talk...about ANYTHING!!!
