A cat in a pack of dogs
A zebra in a herd of elephants
An airplane in a flock of birds
A lion in a pack of wolves

A soft whisper ti a loud scream
The sound of a harp to an electric guitar
The sound of nature to an argument
A baby's laughter to a baby crying

People feel like they stand out
Like they are on the outside lookin' in
People feel different from everybody
Like the don't belong

People feel like they are aliens
Like they're from a different planet
People ask themselves why they are here
But there is no answer

This is a poem about how I really felt. It was a sad moment. I express myself by writing poems.

Besides some grammar, great work! It really makes you pause to think and put things into a different perspective.
