What am I doing here?...Do i realy belong?...What am I doing here?...Are we realy getting along?...What am I doing here?...with a sad crying face...What am I doing here?...in this horrible depressed place...What am I doing here?...on my knees at a pleed...What am I doing here?...Without you and in need...What am I doing here?...All alone,being abused...What am I doing here?...being stepped on,being used...What am I doing here?...Now I know why...What am I doing here?...sitting on my bed,waiting to cry...What am I doing here?...My reason is true...What am I doing here?...Im here because of you.

What inspired me me to write the poem you see uptheir was the people around me. Everyone around me whether i knew it or not, were taking advantege of me.They used me.The only thing keeping me from throwing my life down the drain was someone who,when they said "I love you". they meant it so I dedicate this poem to my girlfriend, Hailee.

Thank you! :-) Not everyday someone understands your difficulty legitimately and not sympatheticly.

Very good poem. Funny thing though, we share the same first name: Travis.
