I've been alone the whole time

I feel lost, scared, and confused.
I look around and realize I am alone.
Suddenly panic settles in:
Everyone I thought cared is gone.
No friends, no family, not even a stranger
Are close enough to hear my cries.
My life is a desolate desert
With tears flooding my eyes.
I scream but my voice echos back.
Life has lost all reason and rhyme.
Then suddenly I stop and realize
Throughout life, I've been alone the whole time.

1999

In those few lines of your poem, you have described how I have felt most of my life - alone, different and always on the outside looking in at the normal lives of others. My life has never been normal. At least now my life is healthier.
