Favorite Quote:
'Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind. And therefore, winged cupid is painted blind."
-William Shakespeire


Surrounded by masses of bodies,
Trying to blend, trying to hide,
Of course nothing works,
They are not blind toward,

The new kid.
They point, whisper, gawk at me, about me.
I am nothing special, a girl, Hailing from St. Louis, a girl,
Whose faith is as blinding as her love.


New kid,
Is the word that circulates the halls,
Trying to find the owner of this tag, Me.
I sit in a desk, quiet, alone.
Few approach, most just sit and stare.
I am proof of the gossip, the swollen rumors.


New Kid
Is how they call to me, grasping my attention, testing to see if I'm clique worthy.
I turn my head with a witty remark, New kid has a name.

I wrote this during my first week at my new school in a nwe town. The first month was hard, seeing as how I'm not a social butterfly, but friends and God have helped me through.
