I have three best friends,
And other friends besides,
Why do I feel so alone?

Someone is talking to me
I don’t even listen.

Why do I feel that coldness
In the pit of my stomach?

Someone taps my shoulder.
I don’t respond.

Why is a cold feeling
Creeping over me?

Probably because someone
Just put a snowball down
The back of my coat.

I feel my anger rising,
Taking over my loneliness.
I am no longer alone.

The End
