Please tell me

Please tell me

Lately I've felt,

Rather left out,

I've many a time knelt,

And started to cry out.

Cried out for the feeling,

Of being wanted and liked,

Cried out for the feeling,

Of being needed and loved.

But these feelings instead,

Leave me behind.

Behind with rejection,

Behind with dislike,

Behind with desertion,

And loveless despite,

All the cravings I have,

I never get,

Instead I have,

The opposite of it.

I need someone to tell me,

They love and care for me,

I need someone to tell me,

That they need me.

I need someone to tell me,

They will be there.

I need someone to tell me,

I'm not screwed in the head.

But do they care?

No, they never do.

They'd rather leave me bare,

Dying on the floor too.

How heartless are today's people?

How pointless is it to get help?

How can I get through life's trouble?

If I don't ever get help?

Please somebody,

Tell me there's a way.

Please somebody,

Help me be okay.
