I am angry at the world and I often wonder why
I don't want to throw my sorrow on all those who have hurt me
Yet you are one of the main reasons I cry
I cry because you weren't there
Abandonment Poems by Teens
Abandonment leaves wounds that heal slowly and scars that fade even slower. Usually, the effects of abandonment last a lifetime. Only those who have experienced the anguish caused by being abandoned can understand the depth of this feeling and the fear it causes. It causes one to lose their sense of security. It causes one to feel unlovable and suffer from low self-esteem. The fear that abandonment causes in a person will affect all of their future relationships. Fortunately, confiding in a trusted friend can help a person to work through their abandonment issues and cultivate healthy relationships.
