There’s a stranger staring at me.

We share the same facial features,

But I don’t know who this person is.

This person is laughing

And I am crying.

I rarely ever laugh and mean it,

But this person seems like they are truly happy.

I wish I were this person,

They seem to have so many friends.

I have no one, I am alone.

This person has it all together

While I still try to glue the pieces from the last time I was broken,

If only I knew this person,

Maybe they could show me how to be,


The person was me.

But who am I now?
