    What happens to the dreamer
    When people seem scarce?

    What happens to the blessed at heart
    When no one cares,what you're thinking of
    When you don't matter at all?

    What happens to the ones
    Destiny calling them
    And that ounce of faith
    That would set them off in motion
    Is desolate?

    What a tragedy
    To go through life alone

    Although I feel this is the beginning
    I need somebody that is free and strong

    Who isn't trying to please a crowd
    But to be an individual and think for ones self

    Where do I go from here?
    My heart is filled with so much fear

    My tenderness
    Is melting away

    My faithfullness
    Is drowning in passions
    Too deep

    My mind won't allow me to think
    Correctly from the start

    I begin to wonder
    And think to much

    I drift away
    On a lonely island

    Where nobody knows my name or shares my heart
    So what happens to the lonely ones?

    I just want to be held,

    At first I couldn't wait to get out of your grasp
    Now I can't wait
    To be recieved by someone else

    Do you just give up
    When things are looking glooming and sad

    Do you just throw in the towel
    And stop pursing your dreams
    To be overwhelmed in so much desire and need

    Who can you run to?
    When everybody is already
    Latched and clinging to eachother

    When
    Seems
    All souls have a soulmate

    And whom you think
    Are your fate
    Disguise themselves in the laughter

    And turn around and break your self asteem

    My shouts come screaming like the thunder
    Rolling in
    And tumbling like an avalanche

    Lonely
    Consumed
    In sadness

    Unaware
    And always looking over my shoulder
    Another day comes and goes
    Who can I run to?
    When I have no one to run to?
    I'm so confused and tired

    Madd,

    I ain't got no true friends.In the words of my older cousin "I don't need a man I need some friends" That's were I'm coming from. The dudes are coo,but I need some sistah friends,some things you can only share wit another female and I don't have any reliable friends who I can talk who are thinking about the same things I'm thinking about or who understands me. That's all,it don't do no good to have dude friends but you don't have no girl friends to back you up or have your back. Outside of school,who's on yo level so to speak,who is being there for you. I'm not saying that I don't have girlfriends who I talk to but it's only sometimes. They always worrying about how pretty they look or that kind of thing and they just mad at me when I don't even do nothing,(some not all) but they just don't like me. I extend my self in terms of friendship I'm nice I laugh a lot,I'm well grounded and down to earth,I'M JUST REAL with everybody,and maybe to real or in deep thought for most to understand that's all,so just pray for me because aside from having good female friends in general,I need sistah friends who we can get along and see eye to eye for once. I'm not saying I don't have sistah friends but we don't kick it outside of school and they're not interested in the things I like to do,in terms of personality traits we're different. We get along and talk but we are interested in different things. (And sorry,that this is so long)lol

    P.S. So maybe that could give you a better picture of what it's been like for me.

    STORMY....

    i can relate sweet lil sister... but remember...
    there's a definite difference between being "lonely"
    & "alone"... you always got me!! :) & if all else
    fails... you know who to turn to... with Him...
    you're NEVER alone...

    NothinButLove...

    Hey sis

    True true again,you said it! I agree,you can also have a lot of friends and still feel lonely. So when all else fails call on Jesus. Very true. Stay positive Miss Queen.
