Do You Know What Its Like - Poem by Ben Coomer

to feel all alone
to wish for something
to knock on the door and nobodys home
and want to give something

to walk on your own
to need someplace to stay
but even in the smallest crowd
you hide in the shadows of the brightest day

to brush past death
to not be asked if your okay
when you skip a beat and lose your breath
to never be the same

to feel like its okay
like your not important
or even worth the time of day
do you know what its like
