I have everything
And I have nothing

I have friends, family,
and a roof over my head.
I have food, water,
and I sleep on a bed.
I have books, pencils,
and get an education.
I have perfect grades,
and a good reputation.

I don't have happiness,
and I don't have a dream.
I have no goal,
and no idea what I wish to be.
I have a pillow,
soaked with my tears.
I have too many ideas,
and I have even more fears.

I have everything
And I have nothing

    And I'm always here to talk if you want to :)
    Ooh also one more thing, I love how you started with your ending! It's so awesome and woven in there that I didn't even notice until just now!

    Wow- this was moving! I especially love the ending! and rhyming education with reputation was genius! If this is based on true life, I hope you find your passion and happiness soon :)

    Lovely poem! I have felt this way before too. I love how you repeated the lines "I have everything/And I have nothing" at the end.
