girl in the dark, in the corner

For one so young,
To be so insecure
In yourself,
To feel so worthless,
That you have to seek
Approval from those around you,
To feel so apart,
That you have to seek
Care from anyone you can,
To feel so alone,
That you want to find
Love in inappropriate places,
To feel so afraid
That you cannot cope
When darkness falls,
To feel so unloved
That you crave togetherness
But can never find what you need
For one so young
To be so insecure
I worry about what your future
Will be.
