Alone Poem by Teens

Poem About The Hurt Of Being Isolated And Alone

I wrote this poem while crying at night and unable to go to sleep. Simply writing down my feelings calmed me. I was angry at myself for being so shy that I had isolated myself from those who loved me. I felt isolated, alone, and invisible. I didn't feel like anyone understood who I really was. I felt hurt because no one really took the time to get to know me. The ones who preached friendship to me ignored me... even on my birthday. Thank God, He is my comforter. And I had His Word that night.

Can Anybody Hear Me?

default © more by Katie M. Elliott

Published: February 2016

I want someone to hold me,
But I'm the only one here.
I want someone to listen to me,
But I'm the only ear.

Can anybody hear me?
Does anybody care?
Does anybody even know
I'm dealing with despair?

There are voices in my mind
Saying I should die.
Will anybody even tell me
They're only just a lie?

Does anybody love me?
Would they shed a tear?
Would anybody even care
If I were to disappear?

The ones who preach friendship
Have left me all alone.
The ones who are not here
Promised not to let me go.

Can anybody see me?
Does anybody care?
Does anybody even know
The burden that I bear?

I've built up this wall
To hide who I am,
And now that I need help,
I'm alone behind it all.

Can you see the real me?
Will you even try?
Can you even tell I need
A break in the wall tonight?

I'm crying all alone,
Not sure what to do.
Please just let me know
That at least I still have you.

I'm depressed. I told my mom, but she thinks it's a phase. "You're a teenager, it's normal. You'll be fine. I thought she would know best, so I didn't press, but I'm not okay. I've taken at least 50 depression tests, and they all say I have severe depression. I'm not as strong as I want to be. I know I'm not alone...please tell me I'm not.

This is a wonderful poem, and you sure have a way with words, and putting your deepest feelings into those words really brings your poetry to life. It is very therapeutic. Please keep up your poetry so many other young people, and people of all ages, can relate to your feelings in this poem. We have all been there one time or another in our life or will be at some point in the future. It's actually refreshing to have a good cry once in a while. It cleanses us of negative feelings and can almost give a feeling of relief to just get it all out. Sometimes we even cry tears of joy, and that's even better. Wishing you joy in your future. Be patient. Keep writing!

Hi, Katie. Your poem is very well-written and really relatable! At least once a month I have these days where I just cry because of something bad that happened that day and feeling overwhelmed. During that time, I feel kinda alone. Whenever we feel alone, I guess we just have to remember the song from Into the Woods-"No one is alone." No matter how we feel, we are never truly alone, especially with God watching over us. Thank you for your amazing poem :) Have a good day!

Hi Katie, this poem is just amazing. You do not know how much this is related to me. I am very similar to you. On a similar night at a youth group camp of mine, I felt the same feelings in this poem and have been for 6 years. I only started fighting it with some friends that saw through 2 months ago, and now I don't have depression and don't want to die. I'm scared to die. I don't want to leave. I'd cry as I fade from reality. This poem is now my favourite of all time. I want you to keep writing; you are amazing, no matter what those lies tell you!!

This poem related to my life so much! I am a really shy person myself and one night I made a song from writing down all me feelings and it was about how I built a wall around myself because I had been hurt so much and felt that there was nobody. I know exactly how you feel! Stay strong and keep following God! He will free you!
