Favorite Quote:
Nowadays, everybody wanna be weird. We know how to manifest being weird. ASAP Rocky

7 billion people on this planet
but I still find myself feeling lonely.
A billion languages
but not one person speaks mine
I've seen people hurt people crying
has it destroyed me?
I feel trapped when will I be set free?
I try to find a real friend
but they all greedy.
I got this love will, I ever find someone who will need it?
blessed with a beautiful family
but still I find myself being lonely
I feel like everyone lying will I ever know the truth
too many people asking me what race I am
does it really make a difference?
I see a thousand faces every day
but still I feel alone.
The people that think like me
all rich and famous so I'll never know them
but still, I dream of finding a real friend.

The author's comments:

My inspiration for this poem is an interview with A$AP Rocky, where he talks about the importance of art and accepting you for you. I hope that anyone who feels lonely or "trapped" in society's expectations can take from this that there's always other people going through similar things and anything can be overcome.
