    I feel as though I will never be seen

    for what I could be. I don't know how to prove I'm worth being appreciated. My friends are off having fun and they plan their fun day in front of me but without me. I need new friends.

    Scared And Lonely.

    I'm scared. I'm lonely. I don't know what to do with my life. I've been made redundant. My wife left me. Took the children. And is now a lesbian. The children fight. She stays in bed with her girlfriend. I want a hand to hold. I want to be held and hugged and kissed and loved...
