2017: A Year of Loss


2017 was a roller-coaster year.


I lost so many people this year from my life

and oftentimes they chose to walk out of my life. 


I don't understand why people don't want to know me,

why they write me off completely. 


I don't think I'm a bad person

and yet they still leave in droves.


I wish I knew why they decided to do that;

For all I know it's not because of

something I did.


But until I hear otherwise, 

I have no choice but to assume that it's me.


What's wrong with me?


What is so awful about me

that I am always rejected?
