It amazes me that I still get shocked when people disappear.
Into thin air it seems, with no rhyme or reason to been seen.
I’m just one of many who have had the unfortunate experience of being discarded away.
So, what does one do when this occurs?
I’ve tried harder.
I’ve changed myself — for better and worse.
I’ve screamed and cried.
Yet — much to my dismay
All the consoling myself, saying, it’ll be okay…
NO! NO! NO!
It’s NOT. It’s NOT okay!
How cruel a thing it is to feel like living trash!
A paper cup in the bottom of a dirty can!
Waiting for the big truck to come with its dreadful crash!
