I've tried speaking to them twice
But my hello's went unnoticed
I stood in a room full of people
No one saw I was broken

I've tried piecing back the parts of me that have shattered
But my mind is telling me I do not and must not matter

Tears crashed into my cheeks
Like rain to the shore
All I want is for them to see me
Just understand me more

I've tried speaking to them twice
But my hello's went unnoticed
I stood in a room full of people
No one saw I was broken

Outside on the balcony I stood alone
Something in me can sense I would not make it home

The sky was pitch black not a star insight
I've never been lonelier than I was that night
The silence called out for me to join it
I decided right then I must explore it

For the first time in a long time I felt free
There was no point in counting to three
With one inhale and sigh of relief
I stepped off that ledge setting me free

I didn't try saying goodbye
It would go unnoticed
I'm shattered on the concrete
Everyone can see me broken

Sad...when we're invisible to those we want to see us...to hear us...to acknowledge our worth...or just our presence. When we are ignored, it leaves us wanting...not necessarily their approval but just an acknowledgment. I hear your salutation, Skorpiokisses.

Hello. They call me baller. Nice to meetcha.

I'm Black on Destee, I feel at home! It's been a while! Soooo in 2004 I married my Senegalese Husband, when I first went to Senegal, I loved, it! The people were hospitable and my husband's family was very kind! Well I've been there many times now, have taken African Americans, well over 150 and it has been an amazing experience!
