" Live your life to the fullest. "

Life goes on, but I always find myself in this dreadful position,
It's like I'm yelling and screaming but nobody wants to listen.
Things get worse before they get better, now I know that's true,
But how can I possibly go on when I don't know where to turn to?
It's like I'm wasting my life, just longing for some comfort,
But still I remain in agony and constant hurt.
All the people around say they care, but I know they don't,
Lying with the famous "I'll always be there," but I know they won't.
It's painful to know that no matter what I do, I'll always feel alone,
But I've come to face the reality that I'll always be on my own.
There's no point of trusting anyone, they'll just turn their backs when you need 'em most,
Even the best of friendships eventually fade away like a lonesome ghost.
My life, it seems, will always be this way, so there's no longer a point in trying,
I've wasted all my years painfully crying...

The author's comments:
I wrote this because I think most people, in some way, can relate to this. At some point in our lives, we feel alone, lost, or confused. I think this goes out to every teen, in particular, who feels this way. Hope everyone likes it :)

I am not.

Dear Lexii, I noticed that your avatar was based out of Pine Bush, NY. I also am from Pine Bush (as is a fellow writer on Teen Ink, "noneofyourbusiness"). I thought I'd give you a shout-out of encouragement to continue writing. You are a talented poet with good taste in movie actors (I'm a monstrous Ben Stiller fan..."The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" is the story of my life). Keep up the good work. Check out some of my stories if you get the chance. They're not my best, because I'm still apprehensive about posting my serious writing online, but you might enjoy them anyway. God bless.
