Within this state,
I am a foreigner.
I am a noted rival of the population,
And I am loathed with an affection.

I am wild,
While they are tamed.
I am armed,
And they are defenseless.

I am a foreigner,
And I choose to be.
They are deplorable,
And I am miserable.

Within this state,
I am a foreigner.
I am white,
As white as they.

They are Herds and Mountaineers,
I am a Hokie and a Cavalier.
They are uniform,
And I am indiscriminate.

Within this state,
I am a foreigner.
I am a foe and an ally,
And I am acknowledged for nothing.

I moved away from home to go to college, and found out that everyone is so much different.
