She wanders alone under the midnight sky,

Lost and afraid,ready to cry.

She feels like  failure in everything that she does,

She doesn't know who she is or who she can trust.

She tries to do right,but everything seems to go wrong,

Don't seem to fit in,doesn't seem to belong.

She feels like an outsider where ever she goes,

Tip-toes around so she doesn't step on any toes,

Everywhere she goes,she feels like a ghost.

People look through her as if she doesn't exist,

Being consumed by lonliness,she balls up her fist.

So angry at herself for having these emotions,

Everyday is the same,she's just going through the motions.

Maybe someday she will feel differently,maybe someday things will change,

These feelings she has now,she will gladly exchange.

For peacefulness and hope,happiness and love,

Maybe she will realize that they come from God above.

    I am an optimist. So I usually always see the silver lining in things. Still, I know what you have been through. That is true. Sometimes when we are alone, we need to cry to God. He is always there. This is a great piece.
    Keep writing.
    Persistence is key

    Thanks for another challenging Poem ~ FRIEND ~ We all get days like that when we feel alone and isolated and even GOD seems distant. Personally when I feel like that ~ I pray and read my BIBLE and the cloud lifts ~ AMEN ~ BRIAN

      Such a relatable piece, with that head down to life kind of attitude. I appreciated the hopefully end though. Looking upward for divine guidance.

      Loved your poem.

        I think we all feel this every now and then.Some more than others,but we all have trials to overcome and hurdles to jump
