Feeling Lonely Poem

This is actually how I feel. I'm always alone, and I don't even know who I can trust anymore.

It feels that it was written for me. With an exterior as tough as a man showing no feelings, I am a girl who gets scared in the night due to a nightmare or does something out of cuteness. But...

And I'm The Girl


Published by Family Friend Poems June 2011 with permission of the Author.

I'm the girl who hides behind a smile every day.
I'm the girl who has a tough exterior,
But that's not who I really am.
I'm the girl who has a lot of problems
But doesn't share one thing.
I'm the girl who keeps everything bottled up.
Sometimes I just need someone to talk to.
Someone to care about me.
Someone to listen to my problems.
Someone to hold me when I cry.
Someone to love me.
Nobody knows the real me.
Nobody knows what I go through every day.
Nobody knows what I have to do just to make it through the day.
Nobody knows that I'm the girl who isn't who I say I am.
And I'm the girl who will cry herself to sleep every night.

It feels that it was written for me. With an exterior as tough as a man showing no feelings, I am a girl who gets scared in the night due to a nightmare or does something out of cuteness. But I was never allowed to be this way. My mother always taught me that if I became weak and like other girls, I will have to cook bread for my family (like she did) for the rest of my life. And today when I see that every one of my fake friend is having a great time with someone they love, I feel the pain of being the loneliest on this earth.

I am the girl who's feeling so low. I went through so many problems. When I was a kid, I didn’t even know that I had a mom. I grew up with my grandma. I used to sell flowers and work in someone’s home. I really wanted to run far from home. I start taking care of myself when I was in 5th grade. When I reached 8th, my mom came to me, and I went with her and I took all the responsibility of my home. I started my dancing career and traveled everywhere (Malaysia was memorable). I worked in Sandalwood film industry and met big artists and enjoyed all the star hotels.

I am that girl. This poem is me. I am a 14-year-old girl, and I'm alone, with no one to talk to. I have been through so much in my life, and I have learned to live alone, even though it hurts like hell. I cry myself to sleep, and I hide behind a mask to hide how I really feel. I never tell anyone how much I am really hurting.

Marianna, I know how you feel. Right from when I was little, I never had anyone to talk to. My parents died when I was born, and my mum now never sees me the same way she sees others. I usually cry myself to sleep almost every night. I live with this loneliness every day. I am 19 now, but even though tend to put up a smiling face, there is something still inside that isn't happy

Hi! God bless you. At age 14, you've probably seen 40 years go by in your lifetime in your mind in your thoughts and in your soul. Do not ever believe that no one cares. I care and the Creator who made you cares, so the next time you are feeling sad and lonely, relax your mind, pull yourself up ,and say these words, “I can, I can, and I will every day” until your miracle happens. With love!

All these replies to your poem confuse me. You all feel the same way, so actually you are all not alone. You have each other to share your troubles and each of you understand what each of you are going through. You guys are lucky and should be sharing your feelings and maybe be able to solve your heartaches and turn them into solving them. Wish you guys the best.

I can totally relate to this. Through most of middle school, I have felt the way you felt. I have always felt like I was lonely and didn't have any friends. Anyone who feels the way this poem describes can relate to this very much. Thank you so much for sharing.

Anyone who feels the way this poem describes upsets me terribly. To go through the time in your life when you should have happiness, joy, and fun but instead feel that way, I wish never ever experience that again.

Same story with me. I am 14 so everyone pushes me in corner. I am not a typical 14 year old. I care about people. I don't tell them but I care about them more than others. Ebola? During pandemic others read newspaper and kept it down. I tried to raise funds, but who listens to a 14 year old boy? No one. I have seen uncensored beheading videos. I want to bring a change but after years of bottling up my anger, my sadness, I am starting to drift into depression now. Still I am not brave to show my emotions. This poem truly reflects that.

I'm that girl... :'(
I do have some people who really do care... they are always there... but when they aren't... I have no one

Like you guys said, this poem is so relatable to not only through middle school but throughout life. I have been feeling like this lately, but when people tell me that they understand my problems or that I will be ok and forget it sooner or later then I feel like my words and I aren't being taken seriously. They're just thrown away and their words are put in to my mouth.

I know what you feel and this poem touched me really strong.
I'm 14 years old and search for people where I can share my problems with, and for someone who is trustworthy.

Thank you so much for writing this poem, I feel the very same way :( and I've always felt like that. And knowing that there are other people out there who feel the same way.. Gives me hope a bit :) . . But it doesn't seem to change the fact that I cry myself to sleep or feel suicidal sometimes. It's really hard. And I'm the girl!

Wow... I can relate to every word of this poem. Like others here, I am 14 and I hate when people think that I don't know anything about life just because of my age. I've been through more in the last 5 years of my life than many people will go through in their entire life. So thank you for writing this, it really touched me.

Wow I love this poem. It's still hard to confess I'm that girl even with the poem though.

I so relate to every single word you say, I'm a 14 year old girl who hides between her smile and cries herself to sleep, sometimes I just feel that is why I was brought here to suffer, no one knows the real me not even the people that I call my best friends.

If anyone does understand it is me. I actually wrote a song with lyrics about this very thing. I feel I relate to you in all of this. I have begun to think that maybe I don't know me anymore. Everyone says a 14 year old doesn't know anything I beg to differ. I have been through a lot of tragedies in my life and each one breaks my a little more. I don't know who I am because I have been broken to a point that I can't even remember who I was. This poem expresses everything I have felt for 3 years. So yeah I may be young but death is my life and pain is all that is left.
