Alone - Poem by Roisin McNally

It all used to be okay.
I had friends, side by side.
We laughed, we talked, it all went so well.
But in a second it was gone.

It started with a text.
A so-called friend was talking about me
But I found out and confronted her.
I lost one friend.

But people sided with her, not the victim.
Sitting with her, laughing with her,
Not noticing I was there.
I lost three friends.

Soon, word spread about my faith
And how I do not believe in their God
The racist coments and laughing started.
I lost nine friends.

Day by day, more dissapeared.
They got bored of me or thought I was a freak
No one spoke to me, no one noticed
I was blinking back tears.

What have I done wrong?
What have I done to for me to become
So isolated and alone
Without a friend to listen?

Tell me please, am I that much
Of a nuisance that you all just pretend
I'm not there anymore
Or that I don't matter anymore?

In a sea of people I am alone.
Sitting in class I am alone.
Walking the hallways I am alone.
Just me. Alone.

It all used to be okay.
But in a second it was gone.
Everyone was gone...
