After my graduation

I walked around and waited for my family to come and find me

And It felt oddly familiar


Standing alone in a crowd 

Where everyone was being 

Embraced and hugged and together


It is an empty feeling

That was the epitome of my high school experience

And I felt like maybe I was not ready for the world just yet


I was scared to begin my life

And nervous to meet people

And worried that I don't belong anywhere


And then my family came running to me

And I cried and cried

At the realization that I was never alone


I always had what I needed

And I knew at that moment

That I would be just fine

😢 I was alone at my graduation too and worried that I don't belong anywhere.
I totally relate to your poem and it makes me happy that your realisation came earlier than mine. Sometimes you read something and it is like you are reading the story of your life. But it gives you hope when see that the story had not the same end. Thank you!
