The World Is Not Listening
The world is not listening
To what I have to say.
I am angry and lost
With no one to help me
Or show me the way.
The pain I feel is so overwhelming
That I can hardly hold back the tears.
Hopelessness fills my heart
As I yearn for a better life;
One I know that I will never find.
I am unable to catch my breath
As sobs of anguish fill my soul.
Whenever I try to face the world
It becomes too unbearable
And I cower in my own world of despair.
An overpowering amount of shame
Seals my fate.
I will never be able to face the harshness
Of a humanity where no one cares,
And the world is not listening.
