I deserve better
Inside, I feel like no one sees me, no one knows me
I do things to get attention so I’m no longer invisible
I don’t feel good doing it,
but it’s better than not feeling good because no one cares
Why haven’t you heard my cries?
Why must I torture myself to get you to care?
Now will you see me?
Now will you care?
Will you believe me?
Will you change me?
Will you keep me? Or will you give me away?
I know I deserve better
Because now I care
I care about living
I care about dying
Won’t you help save me? I deserve better!
This poem was written for all those that feel helpless and cry out for help, hoping someone will hear.
