I write this for you

I do not write my poetry
For myself
I write if for you.
I write it for everyone
Who has ever felt
Even a fraction of
My emotions.
I write it for those who
Want to express how they feel
But simply can’t
Find the right words.
I write it for every
Woman
Who has ever felt
Used
And
Unloved.
I write it for every
Man
Who has ever
Been misunderstood.
I write it for every
Child
Who has ever
Suffered the terror
Of hearing their parents’
First fight.
I write it for every
Teenager
Who has ever felt
Alone
And
Unworthy of love.
I write it for
The world.
The world
May never see this poem
But I write it
In the hopes
That someone,
Anyone
Will read this
And realize that
They are not
The only ones who feel
These emotions.

this poem really got through to me. At first i was like "huh?" but as i kept reading i understood what you were trying to say. I think that this poem will touch everyone who reads it and let them know that they aren't alone.
