This is life

Why does life have to be
The shame, the hurt, and the pain
I sit and think day in and day out
It had to be me
I'm scared and alone
Far in the darkness
With the deepest secrets never heard by a hear
Onlyto my lonesome soul
I use to never be afraid
But now I'm scared of every little thing
I cannot stand the silince
It speaks too much of me
I feel as if I have something missing a part of me maybe
My heart is broken in two
Seems as if it can never repair itself into whole once again
I don't know who I am anymore
I know my name and age and gender
Just not the person deep inside
I hide the inner me

Be yourself!!!

I feel what you feel. I am 17 now but a week after my fourth birthday i was put up for adoption. My brother and sister came with me. I am adopted now and I have a bio sister, a bio brother and an adopted sister, and two adotped brothers. I Never knew my bio dad and I never will. But here is some advice. Just hang in there and you will be okay. and ask God for some help because I know he will help you. God Bless you and I hope you find a family that will take care of you forever.

p.s. how old are you and what is your name?
