About the Poem

This is a poem when I was very unhappy with my life. I wrote it trying to figure out all the confusion and pain I was feeling. Whenever I am sad I look back on it and know that it will get better.


One word expresses the torment, the anger, confusion, and pain.
"Why? " I scream to the uncaring night. My emotions making me go insane.
"Why?" Again, I yell. The silence deafening, defeating, unknowing, uncaring.
I curl up in a ball alone and afraid, no one seeing, hearing, and much less caring.

The salty tears drip unchecked, following paths long remembered and known.
I try to deflect the blows of hurtful words that mar the soul but not the bone.
Blows not aimed intentionally yet hurt just the same.
I do not know when I have not felt the familiar pain.

What a relief it would be to be free!
To be excepted and liked just for being me.
Many may know of my troubles yet not so much as I,
And I know not the way to stop the tears that I perpetually cry.

thank you for writing such a incredible poem!I love this poem because i feel the same way and i frequently ask myself WHY? umm the feeling of rejection and the fact that you are not appreciated for the way you are is unbearable! it hurts so much when your parents and friends tell you that you are ugly or something is wrong with you! when something goes wrong you are always blamed and the fear of being alone! thank you!
