I just want to know what it feels like

To matter.


To matter to someone, something, I just want to know how it feels.


It seems like everyday

I make everyone feel appreciated,

Feel wanted,

Feel loved.


I’m starved from these affections,

Everyday I go,





Maybe that is why I do what I do,

I go out of my way for others,

I cast aside my Selfishness,

My Anger

My Hate


Because I know what it’s like to not matter.
