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!
