sometimes i wonder
who would care
if i left
to run away

at first i thought
no one
but i realized soon
that wasn't true

that was just anxiety talking
and the list of people
who would miss me
is much longer
than i would have imagined

that's great but no one would miss me
maybe you're thinking
but i know with certainty
that you are wrong

for one thing
i'd miss you
your family would miss you
even if they don't show it

your friends
both online and in person
would all miss you
because your friendship
is priceless

your pet
the worker at the store you always go to
the people you play video games with
that one kid who smiles at you in the hall
the one kid you smile at that no one else does
they would all miss you

running away from our problems
seems easier
but you have someone
who stands by you
you just have to take
a closer look
someone out there loves you, even if you can't see it. remember to stay safe, drink some water, and take care of yourselves <3

    Thank you so much for doing this series. I really love your writing and I think you deserve more attention for it. This piece is beautiful and it makes me sad because I know what it’s like to feel like no one would care if one day I dropped off the face of the earth but I have improved so much since then. Hope you’re having a wonderful day!

    I love this piece and you are totally right! Sometimes, people tend to think that they don't matter and nobody would care, but that's totally not true! Anyway, I gotta stop myself from lecturing everyone in the comments, 'cause you already did a great job, so there's really no need! <3
