I Need A Shoulder To Lean On
by Anganiesha  Gilliam

I need a shoulder to lean on
I feel as though no one is here
Every time I turn around
I see more people disappear 

It?s like I live in fear
Because I feel no one is near
When I think I've found my right man
My eyes are still filled with tears

I swear I am so tired
Of being hurt instead of admired
Sometimes I really wish
That everyone would burn or catch on fire

I took a good look at my life
And wondered, Where did I go wrong?
I tried to hold back all my tears
Trying to believe that I was strong

I need a shoulder to lean on
Or someone to be there
Someone to acknowledge me
Letting me know that they care

I?m tired of living in fear
I?m tired of crying my tears
I wish someone was near
Someone that really cares
