I sat on it and wanted to add that last line :)

Alone

13
In the depths of the sea,
I can't find me.

In the highest of the sky,
Everyone but me fly.

Alone.
In the middle, perfectly average.

Alone.
At a standstill, while others keep moving.

Alone.
In a world that rewards it, I've bare privilege.

Alone.
I see you standing, staring, upset, disproving.

Alone.
I close my eyes, let go, and try.
To you fear, I scream, goodbye.

    I can relate to this and love the repetitiveness that makes it almost like a song while stating a sad story

    Wow, there's so much emotion pouring out of this lovely piece! The last line is super satisfying and definitely pairs well with the entire poem :)
