Need

Written by Katrina Kang

She just wanted to fit in.

She didn’t want to stand out.

She wanted to like her own skin.

She wanted to be noticed without the need to shout.

 

She just wanted to be understood.

She didn’t want people to associate her with a stupid rumour.    

She wanted people to know that she was good.

She wanted to be liked for her humor.

 

She just wanted to keep on trying.

She didn’t want to give up,

But it wasn’t long until she felt like dying.

It wasn’t long until she had more that enough.

 

All she needed was a friend,

but she also wanted the pain to end.
