You’re Not the Only One



You’re angry

just like her.

You feel sad,

so does he.

You’re scared?

Me, too.

The demons are universal.

No discrimination or sympathy.

Recognize your troubled world.

You’ll feel less alone and scorned.

The emotions and issues are real,

but are not exclusive to you.

Never feel lost.

Don’t lose hope.

You won’t be forgotten.
