You're Not Alone In This

Published by Family Friend Poems February 2021 with permission of the Author.

You’re not alone in this; you know that, right?
There are others like you.
Hiding. Running. Wishing
for a desire they keep hidden
            (but terrified of it coming true)
Swaying. Hoping. Begging
for change.
            (but terrified of something new)
Hesitant but leaping.
Whole but looking for what they’ve lost.
Wanting the world to see them
but unsure of who they are.


Lauren Bowman is a 33-year-old writer born and raised in north Florida, USA. Her debut collection of poetry and prose, The Evolution of a Girl, was born from a period of exploration, growth and discontent that so many of us face while attempting to understand where we fit into this world. Lauren’s writing is blunt, bold, and speaks with raw honesty about her personal struggles with relationships, self-acceptance, and self-love.
