I am unique,

I am strong,

I am smart

But I am not popular,

While everyone sits,

In the loop of society,

I realize something,

I want what those people have,

I want to know what they know,

I want to know how they feel,

How does it feel to have friends?

How does it feel to be liked by everyone?

How does it feel to belong somewhere?

Then I realize something,

 

Without people like me,

The outsiders,

There would be no loop,

Without the people who stand on the outside,

There would be no popular,

Without me,

There would be no loop,

I am the loop,

I am what holds everything together,

The glue,

I am unique,

I am strong,

I am smart,

I am important.

Sometimes when you don't fit in, it is important to realize that you are important somewhere.
