I Am Waiting

Poem By Lawrence Ferlinghetti

Just look at me
Tell me what do you see
Do you see a dying girl inside

Do you see all the tears that shes cried
She's alone and forever will be
She's afraid in this cold lonely world

Don't you see shes hurt
There's bruises by the world
Its hard for her to trust anyone

Its even hard for her to trust herself
All the pain she's held onto
Its starting to kill her

Afraid to die
But she doesn't want to live
She hates this world

Life is so cold
and people don't see inside
They just walk on by

Its a matter of who cares and who doesn't
and no one cares about this little girl
She sees it in their eyes the way they walk on by

She knows she's alone
and there's no point of living
There's nothing to make a broken heart whole again
