Main character: Ezra
Notes: This is my one and only attempt at poetry. If you can call it that!
Theres a little bit of Ezra and a little bit of me in this.
I stand up and move to stare out the window as my thoughts turn to the past.
Who was ever there to comfort me when I really needed them?
Why did no one ever wish to befriend me?
Because I was not worthy.
With everyone I met it was always the same, surface smiles and surface concern,
But when I really needed them they turned away.
Why did no one wish to know me for life?
Its always the same,
Brief companionship and abandonment.
Loneliness was my one true friend: my constant companion through the days.
I was the only person that I could rely on.
Did I deserve this?
Did I keep everyone at arms length deliberately?
I couldnt be betrayed then.
I felt doomed to walk this Earth alone, until
I feel a gentle hand on my back and I turn to find Vin standing behind me.
Are you alright, Ez? he asks in concern.
Yes, I reply.
I look at each of the six men in the room and thank my great fortune.
These men have given me lasting friendship,
A reason to live.
