Alone I weep,
While everybody else is asleep.

Alone I walk,
While everybody else is listening to somebody talk.

Alone I stay,
Beyond this day.

Alone I will be,
Before and after you come and leave me.

Alone is my past, my present, and my days yet to come,
While people bang on my heart, as if it's a drum.

Alone is not my choice,
But since I have no other option, I shall rejoice.

My heart has been through many beatings,
But I will accept new people's greetings.

Maybe somebody will come along with a joy so strong,
That's I'll just have to sing along.

Live cannot get worse, it can only improve.
So all the regret, hate, and pain in my heart, I will remove.

I can't let the spark in my heart die,
I will no longer let myself cry.

So while I rejoice,
I will remember that alone was never my choice.

The author's comments:
I hope that after you read this you understand that nobody choose the childhood they were given, so instead of being depressed about it, look at the good things in your life, and make the best of them.
