I nearly open it, but then walk away.
I'm alone.
I don't want to be, but I am.
I'm scared that they won't help me, 
The people on the other side of this door.

I cry. 
I don't know why.
I feel like help is nearby,
But I'm unsure.

The people on the other side of this door.

I need to give up.
I need to give in.
I need help.
I need people.
The people on the other side of this door.
