Insignificance

I s a child to be heard?
N o one answers, as usual. The silence is slowly killing me.
S orrow, misunderstanding and these mourning memories,
I s this the way it is supposed to be? Since that fateful day, I have been a 
G irl, lost in a whirl of tragic past, calamitous present and the fear of having no future,
N ever have I known what "family", "friends" or "fiends" mean, for
I have never made or heard of any.
F or I am thirteen, just as inconsequential as a dwarf planet, amongst boundless galaxies.
I live in misery, why won't anyone listen to me? I may be young, but I
C an converse, listen and see, and I
A m as normal as you are. So why
N ot give me a chance to prove myself?
C an you ever give me a listening
E ar? Is a child to be heard?

    Shaking my head is disbelief..This is ongoing and I'm not sure if it will ever stop. It will never decease but it will minimize and maximize. I love the Acrostic!! I love your soul!!

    Thanks for commenting and your comment really made me grin... I must really look like a total retard now but whatever :) I completely agree with you, the discriminations that people can have are really... Malicious, I guess.
