If I Knew Someone Cared


If I knew someone cared.
If I knew someone loved.
I would be able to
Handle without
Messing up.

If I was pretty.
If I was kind.
I would no longer be
The girl
People want to leave
Behind.

If they didn’t expect
So much out
Of me.
If only the would
Like me for who
I am.
I don’t think
I would no
Longer give a damn.

I care about
Your thought,
I care how you feel.

Why can’t
I allow my
Pain to heal?

    Beautiful poem with fantastic lines......

    Why can’t
    I allow my
    Pain to heal?

    That's the beautiful thoughts you have expressed well. If we can allow pain to heal by ourselves then this shows one is courageous enough to handle all pains.

    I loved the way you presented. Thanks for sharing with us.

    Congrats for this poem being the poem of the day! ! ! (Report) Reply

    Like this. I would though put thought in the plural, and the main verb in the second verse in the conjunctive, were
    pretty, were kind. A good poem! (Report) Reply

    You mean subjunctive, not conjunctive, but you are right otherwise. She should also add a y to the on the one line so that it says 'if only THEY would like me. A great poem in any case. Congratulations on being selected as poem of the day!

A smile of joy since I was born
