   i am not the one you know

but i might be the one you want

i can't see how i fit

in the puzzle

but i've been jammed in

forced to be square

when i really am shapeless

all that pushing

and pushing

has left my edges ragged

and i make a hole in the sky

'cause i'm neon yellow

and it's blue

i guess i'm not what you want

so take me out

put me back

throw me away

you can't use me

i'm broken and frayed

and i don't belong.
