Why: A Poem

  • Author:

Is it so wrong to want to be noticed

To want to be recognized

To crave that acknowledgement for what I do

Why do I feel so guilty for wanting this thing everyone around me seems to get

And why does my heartache when It isn’t given

Why do I feel ignored and forgotten

When credit goes to someone else

Or no one at all

And why does it hurt so much more

When it’s my friends

The ones who say they care

When they don’t have to

Why even surrounded by those that call me friend

Do I feel more alone than ever

And why

Oh lord why

Do I simply want to cry

But can’t
