Walking down the halls what do you see
preps,jocks,reeks, and then there is me
I don't fit in
I don't belong
I am a blemish on a once perfect skin
Or a bad chord in a one lovely song
I run away
From all the glares of contempt from day to day
No cares how I feel
Silently I endure invisible pain
Sadly I don't have a heart of steel
I feel i must hide my face
Because in our eyes I am a disgrace
Hopefully after all the unkindness I have been shown
Maybe I'll find a place to call my own

I can definitely relate to this. I like how you divide everyone and than put yourself as a whole different category. It's unfortunate for people like that, but true. Very nice!

You capture the feeling right.. At school I always feel like I never have the right to look anyone in the eyes.. Favorite line was "Or a bad chord in one lovely song"

It is sad that as we get older it feels like we seem to be less and less accepted for who we are.
