what doesn't kill you makes you strong

I stand on the outside looking in
I see me and my stupid little grin
I can feel the people around me
Warm, comforting, inviting
While I’m on the outside screaming
Please let me in
They take me and tell me lies
And I don’t know what to feel inside
So I just smile and laugh without a clue
I try shouting what to do
Get away to please escape
But too late I’ve been sucked in
I gave everybody everything
Including within
I stand on the outside and try to reach myself
But I don’t listen
I hear only lies and feel dead
Now I’m completely gone
I’m standing there all alone
Just me myself and I
And my heart that has died
I stand there just wondering
I stand on the outside looking in

i wrote this after i my friends try to get me to do something i didnt want to do. they turned on me and it inspired me to write this. i hope that when people read this poem that they will understand that the people you call your friends might not be your friend and that it's ok to say no
