Poets & Poetry

Is it just me?

Tears are flowing,
Rain is pouring,
Is everybody like this?
Or is it just me who’s hurting?

When I’m asked if I’m fine,
I’m stammering up in my mind,
I say I’m alright and it’s me who knows,
What really goes on in my mind.

Some say I’m too young,
To be hurt and stressed.
Didn’t they, too, go through
The exact same phase?

The people around me,
Seem so happy with their lives,
Is it just me?
Or does everybody lie?
