Alone Again
By Jackie McCartney

I’m locked in my room
I’m lonely, I’m cold, I’m hungry
I hear voices
They need to see me
They need to talk to me
The nasty adults tell then
I’m asleep
I thought they had come
To rescue me
But they left
Never saw me
Never spoke to me
I was left in hell
My voice unheard
My pain not seen
It’s okay
The window is there
I will go myself
They will not notice
I climb out into the
Nights cold air
