Someone Like Me

I don’t know
Where to go how to move on from here
I don't see
A silver lining where you said it would be
I am the worthless rock in a pile of gemstones
I need
Somebody here somebody like me
Someone to
Take my hand be a friend and lead me home
Can't you see
There really is no difference between you and me
We all want
A friend to fit in some kind of family
Invisible that’s me
I blend in to the background perfectly
I know
Things you don't about the world and even about yourselves
You all are so easy to read
Like a book you all open up so carelessly
But if I can read you all with such ease
Then why is it so hard to find
Somebody like me
I am
The worthless rock in a pile of gemstones
I need
Someone to reach out and teach me to shine
To show me the silver lining
To show me the road I must go to make myself a new home
I want
To find somebody
A little like me
I wish
I could snap my fingers and let a second me exist
I know
I could shine brighter than all the stars
In the sky
I just need
A little push somebody to
Help me find my way and
Show me the other side
Of this place

I know exactly what this poem is talking about! It's very eloquent. On those days you just feel horrible you DO wish you could snap your fingers and feel like you matter, you wish that someone, anyone would care. Amazing piece.
