Nobody Understands Me

Nobody understands they don’t know what i feel i cut myself to relieve the pain on the inside but everybody thinks I do it to try to act all cool but I don’t care what people think or say at school they don’t live my life so they don’t understand the hurt I feel on the inside nobody seems to to understand my life is messed up nothing ever feels right. Nothing is ever good in my life. Everything is wrong nobody seems to understand that it hurts to realize that I don’t have a dad or mom. Everybody tells me to forget the past. To forget the friendships that never did last. I move from town to town trying to find a home but never do succeed. Every step that I take is more pain developing. I wish somebody would say they understand then again they couldn’t all my life revolves around death my life is like a dream a dream slowly becoming a nightmare which i wake from screaming. Nobody seems to understand that foster care is the worst place to be I get moved into a house full of strangers without any of my family. I sit there wondering why and the longer i sit there the harder i cry. I wish my brother was right here by my side as I cry my eyes out all damn night nobody gets that all I want is some one to hold my hand and look me in the eyes and tell they’ll be there right by my side starting right then and as all my wishes just fade away I take a blade and try to cut my life away and still nobody understands me all I want is for one day my life is not full of misery.

  1. i felt so much sadness reading your verse.. i sincerely hope your life becomes filled with more love n peace n happiness ..

  2. Don’t worry, your not alone. This is exactly how my friend feels. I hope you feel better and be happy. Can you write a poem on what can make you feel better? i want to make my friend feel better so bad, but i really don’t know how…

  3. i love you poem.you put sooo much emotion in it . i feel for ya gal!! how do you post poems on here

  4. I know how you feel. i wuz adopted too. my life sucks but dont cut your self. just stop wat ur doing and think how good life could be if you actually had something to live for.

  5. i may not be adopted, but i know the pain your feeling. i know this because i feel like my parents don’t even think i am here, when i can be right in frount of them. i have cut my self, to me the pain i feel inside is way worse feeling than the pain from cutting my wrist.

  6. i know how it fells a little bit my real dad used to abuse me i wanted to die but then i moved very far away from him.If you need someone to talk to ill talk to u and if you need a home i can find one for you. oh hey jen can u post these please and then call me i really need to talk to you thanks milk

  7. that was so sad i feel yur pain.
    when i was reading this i couldnt help but cut myself to relive the pain

  8. i know how u feel, i dun have a father and that alone is hard. maybe you should be like me. have a mask which you wear everywhere. except when u are alone. your mask will be another side which everyone knows. its like having a split personality….
    and maybe if u have a really really close friend, tell them, the truth, why u use the mask u use. i have a friend who is always very cheerful. always has a smile on her face. one day she told me way she was always so cheerful and happy. it was one of the best reasons i’ve heard. she told me; “i’m always a happy cheerful person, to show the world that even though my parents are split i can still get on and live with my life.”

    and although your friends tell u to “forget and forgive” maybe u should give it a try. i know its hard to “forget and forgive” but u cannot continue lving in the past. sure it maybe one of the worst chapters of your life but if you just forget, not completely, but to accept what has happened in your life and look back at it one and and be proud of yourself that you made it through. by forgetting you can prepare for the future.

    thats what im doing now. i’m going through a really hard time atm. but for all i know i dun care what others think of me. because they do not know me. only my mask. and a handful of ppl i trust and care about know my story. and they try and support me in any way they could.

    p.s u shouldn’t cut yourself cuz it leaves bad marks (i would know)

    hope this helped

  9. I loved this poem it was so sad it made me cry. I would love to get to know u and talk to you. Im in a foster house right now and i have been n a shelter to because my dad raped me and my mom did all sorts of drugs. They never fed us or nothing an so by the time cps cam i was 14 and i only weighed 50 pounds. The doctor said i was very unhealthy and i needed to eat. It is gay and i know how u feel cps is terrible i hate them i cry every night of my life because of them but ya know it will get better it may be stormy now but it cant rain forever.
    Bye I’m so sorry…

  10. i feel your pain……i know how it feels to not be understood…….my life is bad,too……..but i have to say that cutting your self is not the answer,trust me i know…..the marks it leaves will remind you of how badly live is……. my past and present is not that good either but i do what i can do to forget it all…….i would love to tell you a story but i dont have much time now……

  11. I cut myself before to get rid of the pain of my dad mulesting me.

  12. i know how it feels 2 have no1 understand and have a crap life but i just have 2 fake that im not about 2 kill myself. i know that even thought it might feel like it, ur not alone. ps, 2 evry1 who said ‘ just forget the past’ and all that crap, sumtimes the past is happening now so u cant just forget it.

  13. i know how u feel
    im in foster care too and im 13
    this is the 2nd year ive been “in the state”
    because of reasons i cannot say
    i cut myself too
    go to therapy twice a week
    nobody understands me
    its like i act happy at school
    i HAVE to
    because if i dont i get more therapy and my foster mom doesnt want to deal with me
    she says im too much for her to handle
    so i dont know where ill be tomorrow
    u just gotta deal with today
    and you know..make the best out of it
    i hope u get the love that u need

  14. hii i know what you have been through. i dont have a mom or a dad and ive been adopted 17 times by all strangers.i cutt to relive the pain. all the kids at school make fun of me cuz i do itt they never uderstand and i always tell them “if they have felt the pain ive felt you would be doing the samething”. everyday i look in the mirror and see tht this is a person who no one cares about and is lonely and feels lik a piece of paper being ripped up and thrown away……

  15. im not adopted but thats EXACTLY how i feel ,no one ges u,trying to rule ur life trying toforce u to do stuff. i only have 3 people that i actually love thats my mom god and jesus. other than taht my world is lonely .ur not alone.i know wat u feel like,im ur friend i will always be ur friend.so ur not alone……

  16. its OK. Sometimes parents dont understand what people like us want and need, neverless strangers. Everyday i give people hugs but never get them back. Everynight i cry myself to sleep, but get no tears back. im afraid to cut myself, to feel the knife go through my vains. So, i bruise myself, hurt myself. I try to get lost into things i need and love, but everyone pulls me away and get me to do what they want. It kills me inside. yet everyday i go and give someone else new a hug, but i never get hugged back. So, stranger, heres a hug, where i think i need it.

  17. i feel your pain, when i was reading this poem i cut myself a few times to releive myself.

WHEN IM SAD, SCARED,OR JUST NEED TO TALK TO SOMEONE I GRAB MY BIBLE AND I PRAY.AND IN MY PRAYER I ASK GOD TO GIVE ME A SCRIPTURE TO READ. WHEN IM DONE PRAYING WITH MY EYES STILL CLOSED I OPEN MY BIBLE UP THEN I OPEN MY EYES AND READ THE FIRST THING I SEE. AND IT IS ALWAYS THE ANSWER TO MY PRAYER!

  24. I”m not adopoted, but there is a lot going on in my life, so I can kind of feel your pain. I hope your life gets better, because right it seems as if you no longer want to live. Just remember that life is better than death. Maybe one day you will become famous or find the love of your life. You don’t want to miss out on any of this stuff, so no matter what you do don’t kill yourself. Think of the good not the bad.

  31. oh my god. thank you for posting this, it makes me feel better to know i’m not the only one who feels like this

  32. all i can say is…thats me…every single thing u wrote in the poem is my life….

  33. I am adopted and I also cut myself so I understand what you go through. Just like you my friends don’t understand the pain I go through either and they think I am just doing this cause of a girl I met a while ago.

  34. this poem is a refletion of your life mine is not the same quite the opposite actuley but i read poems like this i love them such detail in which you create i love the way you put ur words …… i’m glad my life isnt yours but in much hurt and despair you have alot to write about and thats good but instead help yourself by figuring out to make ur poems more to you likeing and ur life .

  35. wow this is some of the best writing iv ever seen… i loved it.. it made me feel ur pain… so deep… just keep writing hun … it makes me feel like thers another person in the world who feels like me… ALONE..

  36. I love this poem its really touching and sincire, I can relate myself because when you come to hight school its like if your going to war

  37. I can relate to this. my past aren’t so bad, but I know how it feels when nobody understands you. you are not alone. somewhere out there, there are people who understand you. you have a home. I know it.

    I think you need to relax and start be grateful for small things. for the common things you see everyday. for the sun to rise, for the wind to breeze, for the stars to shine, for the coffee you drink, for everything. and more importantly, be grateful for yourself. I believe you are amazing in your own way.

  38. Cheer up!!!

  39. My life as ur life //_T

  41. Ur not alone we’re all here with u,I liked ur poem so much I want to read more poems written by u coz ur a very good poet & I think tht u will hv a great future waiting 4 u!!

  42. Hi.
    I know 100% How you feel.
    I’m only going into the 8th grade,and yet I have been to 6 schools in my period of time. My father is on drugs. I don’t know where he is, or who he is with half the time. Everytime I talk to him on the phone he ignores what I’m saying, or puts me on hold for so long then says he has to go. My mom is never home. She’s always at work. She puts me in charge of everything. Cleaning, getting my brothers showered and dressed. I moved again, so I have no friends here. I began to cut myself in the 7th grade. I was forced to live with only my grandma and everyday she would yell at me and tell me I need councling and to get help. I know exactly how you are feeling. It’s a horrible pain. All you can do is pray to God. He’ll answer your prayers.
    Much love.

  43. thankyou for posting this poem, it really spoke to me, i feel like i wish i, too, had someone to hold my hand, hold me tight, and tell me “everything will be alright, i’m here and i’m staying here, i’m not going anywhere and staying right by your side until everything is alright again, and even then i’ll never leave you.” i so desperately need someone to help me, to understand and comfort me. i cut myself too, i don’t know what else to do that will actually help. i wish i had had a different, better life. nothing ever gets better. nobody really cares about me. they say they do, but if they did, where are they? why aren’t they here? why isn’t someone here, helping me, encouraging me, comforting me? i need someone. i don’t have the strength to help myself, and noone can help me. i will never feel good again. my mind is too f**ked up. i wish i didn’t “believe” in god, it would make my struggle so much easier. and i wish i didn’t care about my family and vice versa, that too, would make my decision a lot easier. i can’t remember when i felt good about my life. i don’t even know if i have the capacity to feel good about anything anymore. maybe the reason i can’t get “better” is because i’m not meant to be here. i just don’t know anymore. i can’t even think straight. there’s so much more i want to say, but the words just won’t come. my mind is essentially killing me.

  44. i always feel the same way every day

  45. N`Awwwww i feel so sorry for you everyone is so happy why cant you , I mean i feel your painn :( Saad:(– i will be by your sideee :D I will x

    Okay, trust me there will be hope for you one day Maybe today.. Someone will love you and care for you and be by your side to hold your hand and tell you everything is going to be okay but the truth is IT WILL! They wont lie everyones not lying who is commenting im nnot lieing :D Okaaaaaayyyyy byyeebyee write more,

  46. that was an amazing poem i cut myself 3 times a day

  47. i don\\\’t know how do u feel but i know it\\\’s hard to feel such feelings ..i wish i could help u someway i wish that your pain will be swept away and more than that i wish u have all the best ,the happiness ,the sweet moments and the love in this world…

  48. Hey, so I’m not going to lie to you like everybody in their messages by telling you I know how you feel…because I honestly have never been through that kind of pain in my life…but I understand that you feel very lonely and you just need some real support and love and care just like anybody human being. What I do is whenever I feel like I need someone to listen to my problems and understand me, I pray.

    And trust me I know what your going to say…I don’t feel like anyone is listening…or…I don’t know the right way to pray…or…I don’t believe in God…

    Just try it, you have nothing to loose anyways…but you have to really try from all your heart, no joke, you need to be strait up with God and tell him EVERYTHING, when you pray you don’t have to have a specific way, what counts is that you’re trying

    And you should try thanking him…I mean, look at other people around you, some people don’t have arms, legs, eyes, or even a shelter…I know that you have a lot of trouble in your life but no matter what, you have to always be thankful for what God gave you because there is a reason for everything….and I’m sure if you show God that you are thankful, than you will start to see a big difference in your life :)

    remember be patient because Good things only come for those who wait

    if you ever decide to take my advise…after a couple weeks let me know if you see any difference in your life, I know I have in my ;)

    much love <3

  49. ……………………………your not alone that’s all I can say

  50. I really dont noe how u feel but i cut myself and i cry because my friend hates me and because my mother died when i was 3

  51. i know how it feels.. not to have someone there to protect you from everything in this world! and i knoww how it also feels not to have a dad… my dad died when i was 9 and i really miss him ! i saw this and when i read it i wanted to cut myself but i realized not everything can be resolved buy cutting myself..! it just hurts more and more … but i understand pain alot because i have gone thru alot of pain in my life as well :( ! hopee your okay today !

  52. I kno how you feel…somtimes i wish i was never born. I tried to hide my tears with fake smiles and cry when ever im alone, i dont like people to know what i am feeling inside and i wish i could die…. I use to cut myself hoping the pain would disapear, but it dosent work, now when i walk around at school everyone looks at me and says stupid things behind my back. They tell others lies and makes me feel so dead… Anyway my best friends are always there for me, they dont ask me questions about my life, they just let me be me and have a chance to forget about things and smile… You know thats what i think u should do, find some friends that really care about you and make you feel speacial cus nothing is more important than having one person who will always stand by yourside. Im not addopted or in foster care but somtimes it feels like my family isnt my family and im just the third wheel that tags along anyway i hope things get better and just so u know … You may feel so small and so alone but your never as alone as u feel.

  53. if this helps i understand.i’ve been threw all of that plus more but trust it gets better.
