Alone On My Birthday


Alone I was on my birthday,
No cake, no candles to blow.
I made my own lunch and sat in front of the tv,
The sound of the tv were all that filled the room.

Alone I was on my birthday,
Because I am a big nobody.
If I were famous or important,
Then everyone would see,
Things would've been different for me.

Alone I was on my birthday,
Maybe I deserved it that way,
But I had always had to struggle for things,
Whilst others had it easy.

Alone I was on my birthday,
Don't need a capital letter for mine.
I prayed tearfully that god change it next year,
That god not let me be alone again.

Alone I was on my birthday,
That dark thoughts filled my head,
Would they even notice me,
When they saw that I was dead.

Alone I was on my birthday,
Made hot chocolate and went to bed.
I prayed for his mercy and pity,
That god grant me a good nights rest.

Alone I was on my birthday,
Missing those lost and gone.
Still I tried to thank god for things I didn't know I had.
I prayed for other people around the world,
May god grant them and me a better birthday, Amen.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
