One person

One person

A Poem by Blossom

this is about popularity.


I am one person

In a group

But sometimes I wonder

If the world is only made up of us

I don’t know

Not one person

Out of this bubble

They feel, they know me

All my insecuirites

But I’ll say one thing

Money can’t buy everything

These people I call friends

They come and they go

Like seasons they fade

Until they’re out of my reach

Like the wind travelling through the trees

I want to know more

I always wondered why

The girl down the streets

Has more friends than I

People, they come and they go

While my house is cold

Popularity is *****

That won’t ever let go

I didn’t ask to be pretty

I didn’t want to be rich

Its not my fault

My parents are like this

They’ve worked hard

So i can be happy

So why is it like this

Why do i feel alone (am I really)

My friends see me as money

My parents are never home

Why in the world do I feel so alone?

Picture perfect image

Its so hard to hold up

Cause I know sooner or later

Someone will catch up

Know that this pretty person

Is not all that she seems

Know that this pretty person

Is always drowning

Be sadness

Or pain

She won’t ever let it show

They’ll know that this rich person

Seems like she has it all

But she wants something so badly

But she can’t have it at all

Popular by ...


But when they catch up

I don’t know what I’ll do

Because I know in reality

The popular person is you

The girl down the street

Who made many friends

Without having to spend money

Popularity is a b***h

That won’t ever let go

I’m caught in this bubble

Of money & vanity

That’s all I’ve ever be good for

Maybe that why in group of others

Wow! This is really well written. i really like the real emotions displayed here. I can relate to this poem as it seems people never really know what your going through they always only see whats on the outside.

Such raw, true feelings, and I felt every word. I guess even
people that you think may have it all, really don't. I assume
those people can mask themselves pretty good, and that thought
is sad. So many things seem all about money, friends, looks, when
what it should be about is being oneself and being at peace.

I think the older one gets the wiser they are abouyt things. Of course,
some people never learn...don't be one of those people.

Very sad and heartfelt! Well written and excellent flow!

It's sad, and full of wisdom, truth, and authentic emotions. Money cannot buy everything and I loved the parts where you repeated that we live in between billions of people, yet each of us encounters a ghost of lonliness every once in a while. Well expressed feelings and simple words used. A good poem. :) And remember, this girl in the poem isn't really alone, there are people all over this site who would like to read her work and thoughts and feelings.
