They sat and laughed,

I went into my room and cried,

I felt so alone when they laughed,

I could hear their cheerfulness while I cried,

I could feel how different I was while they laughed.


I’m not like them,

I am serious,

I can’t laugh at pain like them,

It hurts me deeply because I’m serious,

I don’t want to be like them.


I don’t want to pretend I’m not hurt when I ‘m hurt,

I want to find people like me,

I want to find people who admit they’re hurt,

There isn’t anything wrong with me,

I just need to find people who can sit and talk about hurt.
