Alone Poems by Teens

Poems About Teenage Loneliness

Being alone is one of the saddest conditions for a human being to experience. You may feel alone with your family, if you think that no one understands you. Often people are afraid to share who they are because they think that they will be rejected. However, if you are not sharing who you are, you are not truly with the people you love. On the other hand when you share your true self, you risk being rejected. Often individuals seek people out of the family unit with whom they can share themselves without fear of rejection.

  1. Just My Mask

    Pretending To Be Okay

    Of course I'm fine, why do you ask?
    Oh, don't mind this, it's just my mask.
    It hides the grief, it hides the strife.
    I wear this mask to escape the knife.

    Nobody Understands Me

    Imagine yourself
    Alone in your head.
    You're hanging, dangling
    From a silver thread.

    • By Rachael Weaver
    • Published: March 2011

    I know I get angry, I know I rant and scream
    But all I want to do is wake up from this dream

    But it's hard to do all this when I feel I'm not good enough...

    Poem About Pain And Losing Hope

    Each night I find myself sitting against the tree,
    Hating myself, locking my heart and throwing away the key,
    I sit there and wait, just hoping for the someone who may care,
    No one ever comes, nor will they I am aware.

    • Published: June 2014

    Slowly I feel myself breaking.
    My knees feel weak; it seems I'm shaking.
    My arms are tired and my legs feel numb.
    My mind in a haywire and I want to run.

    The beat of rain upon the land
    Broken teardrop in my hand
    Shattered remains upon the ground
    My beating heart the only sound

    What Depression Feels Like

    Her thoughts bob under the surface,
    Her lost dreams circling around her in clouds.
    Every fake smile, fake laugh,
    Only feeds the emptiness inside.

    I'm not sure if I'm depressed. Sometimes I feel wrong saying I am. Only because nothing terribly bad has happened to me. I haven't been through a close relative dying, I haven't been scarred...

    The me you see is not the real me.
    This isn't who I wish to be.
