Alone On My Birthday - Poem by Rowina M Mallick

Alone I was on my birthday,
No cake, no candles to blow.
I made my own lunch and sat in front of the tv,
The sound of the tv were all that filled the room.

Alone I was on my birthday,
Because I am a big nobody.
If I were famous or important,
Then everyone would see,
Things would've been different for me.

Alone I was on my birthday,
Maybe I deserved it that way,
But I had always had to struggle for things,
Whilst others had it easy.

Alone I was on my birthday,
Don't need a capital letter for mine.
I prayed tearfully that god change it next year,
That god not let me be alone again.

Alone I was on my birthday,
That dark thoughts filled my head,
Would they even notice me,
When they saw that I was dead.

Alone I was on my birthday,
Made hot chocolate and went to bed.
I prayed for his mercy and pity,
That god grant me a good nights rest.

Alone I was on my birthday,
Missing those lost and gone.
Still I tried to thank god for things I didn't know I had.
I prayed for other people around the world,
May god grant them and me a better birthday, Amen.
