The People I Turn To - Poem by mona martinez

i often wonder why i felt so alone,
only cuz the people i wanted to care,
they only cared when they wanted to,
but yet,
they try and control your life,
just to gain control of theirs,
it was like i didn't matter,
only when they felt i did,
for so long,
i was trying to please,
the people who never gave a d@mn,
i was pulled in all directions,
cause i didn't trust my way in thinking,
but than it became clear,
the people who are there for me,
are going to stay by my side,
no matter what,
why should,
the people who don't care,
be the people i turn to?

    well i sort of know this feeling Mona.. in my case people in PH are so great understanding and always send me things.. but people here back away from me when i get close to them..
    i guess people in Ph will always be with you.. i feel this is written in frustration.. i write poems in sheer frustration too.. it does help to get some burden out of your head! ! !
    with lots loves
