She wakes up late, and almost misses the bus
"But I made it," she thinks, "No reason to fuss"
Her locker gets stuck, but no one's around
"I better hurry," she says out loud
At lunch someone bumps into her and a tray goes flying
"It's okay, I'm fine" she says, but she's nearly crying
She works through a problem on the board during math
She can hear the snickering and name calling behind her back
Yet she keeps quiet and continues on
The last bell rings, and she's already gone
At night she cries into her pillow, but she knows in her heart
I will always be different; I have been from the start

In school, there are usually cliques of some kind. There's the jocks, the popular kids, and the tortured nerds. Somewhere in all the chaos, are the misfits. They just don't fit in because of whatever reason. This was written from the perspective of a misfit.
