Why is it that when
You're happy no one cares,
But yet when you want to be alone
Everyone seems to be there?

Why is it that when
You're lonely nobody wants to know,
But yet when you have everybody
Your popularity is all that shows?

Why is it that when
You only want to talk,
Not joke, laugh or anything else,
Everyone seems to take a walk?

I feel like too but always think that no one knows what to do. It might be true or it might not but I dunno. But I will say, no one will not know what to do unless you say something

I know what you mean...

Because people suck, and we're only human. xD It's human nature to be comppletely apathetic to others at times, though it's nice when people know what to do. But hardly anyone does.
