I am Paul Francis, I am a student of university of Nigeria, Nsukka. My hobbies is writing and sport. I educate people through my writing.
If I open the door to myself and wait
Surely must come a friend to be
Lovely enough to accommodate my being
Patient enough to learn my style
Allow me to stay and be a friend
The feeling of rejection has eaten me up
No one really to call a friend
Is this my fault or fault of the world?
I sleep a little to stay up and think
Whose fault is it that am all alone
God, open my eyes to the answers I seek
Is it your plan that am a man alone
People around me, but no one within
Am I rejected or is it a mental mistake
Finally today the answer in mine
I found out the reason why am all alone
I locked up my doors and tied my hands
Waiting for friends to jump the roof
Shouting to myself am all alone.
this is original work written by me. I will love to see how people see this work, and tell me my mistakes.
This is original poem written by the author.

Well written Paul. Your first paragraph says it all and that friend is YOU!
Keep digging deep inside yourself....you are your own best friend.
