The Stick Outs

More by this author
YOU LOOK UP
YOU SEE
WHAT DO YOU SEE?
CLOUDS
CLOUDS ARE EVERYWHERE

WHEN YOU LOOK UP TO THE LEFT YOU SEE A RIBBON
A WHITE STRAND OF FLUFF FILLING THE AIR
AND NOTHING MORE THAN JUST A CLOUD

YOU TURN YOUR HEAD
TO THE RIGHT AND YOU SEE A HEART
SO SOLID
AND MEANINGFUL
YET IT’S JUST A CLOUD
JUST A STUPID CLOUD

THE RIGHT CLOUD
THE LEFT CLOUD
AND ALL IN BETWEEN
ARE CLOUDS
YET ALL ARE DIFFERENT
DIFFERENT SHAPES AND COLORS
DIFFERENT

IT’S THE SAME WITH PEOPLE
THERE’S WHITE AND BLACK
TAN AND PALE
10 AND 100
BOYS AND GIRLS

THE PERSON TO THE RIGHT
THE PERSON TO THE LEFT
AND ALL IN BETWEEN
ARE PEOPLE
YEAT ALL ARE DIFFERENT
DIFFERENT SHAPES AND COLORS
DIFFERENT



THERE’S PEOPLE WHO FIT IN
THEY’LL ALWAYS FIT IN
UNTIL THEY SLIP UP
THEN THEYRE PART OF THE STICK OUTS
THE PEOPLE WHO DON’T FIT IN
AND NEVER WILL
THEY STICK OUT

THE STICK OUTS ARE NEVER GOING TO FIT IN
THEY’LL NEVER FIT IN EVER AGAIN
ONCE YOU’RE A “ STICK OUT”
YOURE ALWAYS A STICK OUT

AT SCHOOL, IN THE WORLD
AT JOBS AND HOMES
WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS
A STICKOUT

LIKE THE CLOUDS
IF YOUR DIFFERENT
YOURE A STICK OUT

STICK OUT OR FIT IN
A PERSON IS A PERSON
AND
A CLOUD IS A CLOUD
