I'm standing here.
Alone, just waiting.

I don't know what I'm waiting for.
But I know something is there.

Reading for me to grasp.

I'm walking.
Along, yet in a crowded street.

Wondering who will be the one that pulls me out of the ordinary.
Something out of the dull and colorless.

I hope that the world will somehow understand.
I want to stand out.
I want my name to be known.

I want to be different.

But thats what everyone says.
These days, being different is what everyone wants.
It's unique anymore.

Because if everyones different, then they're really all the same.

The author's comments:
It's a poem I wrote about how everyone seems to special now. And how it's so hard to stand out because everything has already been achieved.
