Adventure Coming of Age Sad

Alone. All alone in this world. Aren’t we all? No. We aren’t. No one is. Sadness creeps up on us like a lurking shadow. No one can stop it. No matter how hard we try. No one is alone. Only me. Me only. If I had 1 wish, it would be to never be alone again.


People brush past me. I’m a shadow in this world. Just a speck of nothing. They don’t know I cry myself to sleep every night. They don’t know I have no family. They don’t know I have nightmares where I can never get up. No one knows. No one.


I wish I was not alone. I wish I had friends. I wish I had a family. I never knew them. And everyday no one sees me. My name is Nothing. Yes. Nothing. I have no name. So I named myself. Nothing. No last name. No nothing. I’m just a girl from New York. A normal girl, no, I’m nothing. Nothing is literally nothing. Not anything in the universe.


Sometimes I wish I could go into space. No one is there. That way I’d at least be in silence. We learned about space in science. I’d love to be sucked in a black hole. Because you can’t see them. Like nobody sees me. Space. I’d love to go there.


If I didn’t turn in an assignment, my teacher wouldn’t care. But I do them. I have nothing better to do. And after that I dream about space. The beautiful stars. I’d love to be a star. Everyone would see me. Everyone would know. I wouldn’t be alone anymore. I would have people to talk to.


Today we learned that all the planets have no life on them as far as we know. I would love to live on Pluto. It’s the farthest planet, I mean, dwarf planet. It would be silent. As quiet as a mouse. I would love to live on Pluto. It would be so quiet and cold. :) I love the cold. Winter is my favorite. But no one cares.


This is how I feel sometimes and I hope I make this clear, not everyone is beautiful. Beautiful is not a real thing. It’s something people made up to feel good about themselves. I hate the word beautiful. Well, I shouldn't say hate. Hate is a strong word. It’s a really strong word. Really, really strong.



Authors note— I hope you liked this! Thanks for reading! ;)

I made this because this is how I feel sometimes. I feel this way though I shouldn’t! I have soooooo many friends! :) (thanks guys!) but sometimes I can’t help but feel lonely. I sometimes feel left out and alone. But I also made this for others. To show that I know who those people are because I’m one to. Thanks to all my friends and family for supporting me through hard times.

I get you. Everyone feels lonely at some point in their life, it is literally inevitable. I love the stars and all of nature in general, it's like my outlet. I too have felt lonely and betrayed, even on here. But, if we stick together, it's not so tough. I often feel like a shadow too, just off to the side, no one cares. But that, my friend, is when we look to Jesus for help, He is a friend that sticks closer than a brother, and He is always there for you. God Bless You, Lone Wolf (Tiffany)

feeling lonely is not a bad thing though , it's just you yourself having getting away from everything , just you and your emotions , there's nothing wrong about that because at some point being alone does help in recovering from many things , because guess what? people change , friends come and go you never really know who your real friends are because nowadays we get betrayed by the ones we thought they would never betray us.but all in all , i just hope you found some friends or family to get through with you on this journey of yours and th...

Evan, I have been wanting to tell you this for a long time now. I think I'm finally ready to share it. Well, I really like you. Love you even. I didn't want to tell you when we were talking just me and you because my mom was listening and I didn't want her hearing it. My dream boyfriend lines up with you 1. They have to make me laugh 2. They have to sing 3. They have to have some experience in cooking 4. Gotta be cute 5. If we ever did date, they would have to call me cutie. 6. They worry about me all the time I donno if you feel the sam...

No, it's fine that it's short, but Reedsy usually says you have to write at least a thousand words. They wouldn't let me make my stories shorter than that.

Oh! I know a perfect answer to your problem! If you spam a bunch of words at the bottom and them submit it, you can then edit it out and it will keep your story on there! Just make sure it not approved yet! 💜💜💜💜

This was sad, but I’m sure everyone feels this way at some point (me included.) You’re not ‘nothing’ but a talented writer and so much more, remember that! :)
