"Don't punish yourself," she heard her say again, but there would be punishment and pain, and there would be happiness too. That was writing."
--Markus Zusak, "The Book Thief"

If you see me all alone
and I’m truly all alone,
and if you just pass by
instead of saying hi,
remember how extremely hard
it is to hug yourself.
When you see me sit alone
at an empty lunchroom table,
and when you move on
to sit with friends,
remember: it’s extremely hard
to hug yourself.
When I’m simply alone
all by myself,
I can only hope
that you know
how extremely hard
it is to hug yourself.
Because when I see you
all alone and abandoned
I’m sure I’d come say hi,
‘cause I sure know how extremely hard
it is to hug yourself.

Hey, thanks for checking out my stuff! I don't really like the repetitiveness of this one, but its still pretty good.

I love the central line....It sings just like a chorus
