See that girl over there?
The one crying in the corner.
And that boy over there,
The one laughed at endlessly.
It’s all part of an endless cycle called high school.
And I’m stuck in the middle of it.
Being smart should not be a crime, but in this society, it causes total isolation.
Feel that cold breeze?
I do, they don’t.
I’m different and I know it; these people remind me of it every single day.
Always being alone brings the world into perspective.
Just think about it: all the prospects of the world.
Everyone’s always busy, everyone’s always hustling, but do they really have a destination?
Why is there all this commotion?
Why is that girl crying?
Why is that boy mocked?
Why should I feel like I do not belong?
Why do I always need to escape,
Through books or songwriting?
Why does life have to be so cruel?
Unfortunately, none of those books have the answer I am furiously searching for.

it was really good but like andrew said it should have a more creative title!

the world tends to be that way, and it sucks. unfortunately alot of people never notice it, and half the ppl who do notice it dont do anything about it. its just wrong.

I like the poem. But not necessarily the fact that you've title it "Untitled". Yeah, it was an original way to title pieces. But now it's just cliche. Besides, this poem just doesn't seem like one of those "Untitled" pieces. Try to think of a good title for it!

Anyway, good job! Keep up the good work.
