by Iliana aged 10

It feels like I’m all alone
Crying in my room until midnight
I’m just here suffering
I cannot see the light.

I wish someone could understand
How I truly feel
Everything feels like a nightmare
Sadly it’s all real.

A river runs down my face
My eyes go pitch red
My hands clenched
And I cry myself to sleep in bed.

When I wake up
The pillows are wet
From all these tears
“Hey happiness – I think we’ve never met.”

Everyone hates me
They’re exasperated and mad
I try to hide the sorrow but in reality…
I’m sad.
