Favorite Quote:
"speak softly, but carry a big stick"
-Theodore Roosevelt


I look around the room,
I see them staring,
Thirty pairs of eyes,
It doesn't bother me,
It's okay.
"Look another loser", says redhead,
Everyone laughs,
It doesn't bother me,
It's okay.
I walk into the cafeteria,
I look around for a place to sit,
No space,
I sit alone near the garbage,
It doesn't bother me,
It's okay.
Life is harsh,
There are the good times,
There are the bad times,
It's okay,
It doesn't bother me,
I'm me.
