About the Poem

Insecurities get the best of some. I'm afraid I'm one. We can waste a lot of time feeling insecure. Trust me, life doesn't have to be so gray.

Alone Again

Four o'clock in the morning
Afraid to open my eyes
Another day of grief,
A day of fear.
All alone I feel.
I try to justify all the pain,
All of this guilt before my eyes.
Another day of confusion,
A day of wondering.
Is it ever just going to go away?
All this pain that I feel,
And all this anger, is it going to stay?

Ten o'clock in the evening,
Afraid of the nightmares.
Again my breathing stops.
All I can do is stare into the night.
What is it that causes this feeling?
Another night of crying,
A night of hiding,
Alone once again.
My heart feels empty,
And I can't cry another tear.
Another day wasted on insecurity,
A day of wonder.
Is this ever going to end?

This poem related to me in so many ways, when i broke up with my best friend. I was so alone so depressed, so cold each day was another day of hiding the grieve and fear i felt inside and my nights were filled with crying. crying in the dark unable to get to sleep until the early hours of the morning, until i had cried myself out so much my eyes stung. then i would have to get up and get ready for school. breaking up with my bestie was worse than losing someone through death because i had to see her at school. Only my sister who has suffered depression before understood how i felt. My parents thought i was just being a hormonal teenager, but my sister knew it was beyond that, this poem was exactly the way i felt, thank you for an excellent poem
