Alone in a World Full of People
Rachel, Age 15, Magrath, AB

                     
Groups and circles are formed
Tight and close
Yet I stand alone
Distant and quiet
             
No one speaks to me
They look at me and move away
I am alone.
Alone in a world full of people
             
They speak
Yet I donít listen
They are not speaking to me
But around me, of me
             
Whispers are heard
But my ears are closed
They are words about me, words of judgment
Meant to hurt
             
But I donít listen
I hardly notice now
I am that third wheel
That unwanted member
             
I stopped trying a long time ago,
have accepted the truth
I am alone.
Alone in a world full of people
