Ever had that nagging doubt that you just don’t fit ?

Just a feeling don’t belong here

and my face, it doesn’t fit.

Tolerated, not accepted,

so uneasily I sit


Know I’m different, non-conformist.

tell me, is that such a major sin,

reason for contempt, rejection,

to be treated with disdain


Breaking into tight-knit cliques

seems to be such an intrusion

Look the part, try save face,

smacks of gross delusion


When one cares so very deeply

yet is held off at a distance

How does outsider become insider

without being given fighting chance
