Fear Of Being Wanted In The World - Poem by Arline Richards

i have a fear and its a fear most people don't have,
i have the fear of being wanted,
day in and day out i have lived my life by myself with no one to hold and no one to hug,
so now i have a fear of being wanted,
i dont know what to do,
i have always felt like i was never wanted on this earth,
but now the fear keeps close to me and i may fear of being wanted but at least i would rather be afraid of being wanted,
then the feeling of not knowing what its like to be wanted,
so people who say mean and hurtful things to me arent doin me a favor,
but there not harming me either,
so now i guess i will continue to be afraid of being wanted but there is alot of worse things that can happen!

    Arline, being wanted involves certain obligations and expectations that are required of you. So, certainly being wanted comes with a cost, but you're right... there are worse things that can happen! Good write!
