Alone along the halls,
Observing who stands and who falls.
Beaten by those who boast power
And revolted by strangers.
Ruling their little worlds –
Do they even care? No, I haven’t heard.
It’s amazing how no one stands by me.
No one does - But no, I’m still not free.
I need someone to see –
See how reality’s killing me.
To take the pain way,
Assuring me everything’s okay.
I imagine how life would be,
If everyone’s actually jolly.
If no one else wonders how it seems
Then being lonely is fine with me.
It’s better to be on your own
Than to keep up with their hatred souls.
Acting like we are all clicking
But all we need is fixing.
~ P. M. Roya
