Alone Poem by Teens

I'm 15 years old and live in a town of 1,000 people. I have the picture perfect family. Big house, nice cars...My oldest brother is very successful and the other is the High School President and has a full ride track scholarship. My dad is the most important man in town and my mom is the typical mom. To outsiders it looks so beautiful. But no one has bothered to take a peek at the inside. Getting ignored, crying in the shower, and eating alone...It isn't so pretty anymore.

Yelling, screaming--that's what I hear
No noise of laughter, not a sound of cheer
Every word spoken comes out like a punch in the face
Everyone looks with such disgrace

I runaway to hide because no one should see
That this, this is everything I wished it wouldn't be
I want to be different, I want to know why
Why lately I am scared and all the love has died

This is supposed to be fun, a safe place
Instead we fell apart, like a shoe without a lace
I wish I had someone to understand, someone to tell
Instead I just endure this seemingly endless hell

I want to go; not a soul is to know
But soon the scars will be sure to show
My mind resists return, no one will care
But day by day I find myself there

An empty house is not a home
But with people it is a mess to crazy to comb
I want to quit, I want to give up
Yet still I go back and hope for a tearless cup

I'm just like you my half sister and my sister and my dad are all blessed with knowledge and special skills , my mom has a good memory and is blessed a little too, yet I'm so different I do not know why, believe it or not I have cried in the shower a lot of times too, because I know no one can hear me over the pounding sound of the shower drops, oh by the way I'm turning 13 this year so I'd probably be nearly 2 years younger than you.
