“The earth has music for those who listen.” —William Shakespeare


Everyone falls,

Everyone scrapes their knees,

Even birds fall

From their trees.

 

Everyone hurts,

Everyone has pains,

Sometimes the innocent

Take the blame.

 

Life's not always fair,

Words aren’t always true,

Sometimes someone steps,

On everyone else’s shoes.

 

So why do I feel like it’s just me?

Just me who trips and falls

Flat on my face,

Just me who hurts

And feels out of place,

Just me,

The innocent,

Gets blames for almost

Everything.

 

If it happens to everyone,

Why does it feel like

It's just me?

I've gone through some tough spots as well, but you'll come through. :)

I can really relate to this right now. I've been having some stuff that recently happened in my life but really affected me and this poem hits so hard. Thanks for posting this on TeenInk.
