A coward is incapable of exhibiting love; it is the prerogative of the brave.
By Gandhi.


They say hello
And float by on feet like sand
Go into their conversations
Cluster around the coolest kids
Gathered like planets to stars
I lean against the locker and look
Why am I ignored?
What do I lack?
What makes me different from them?
Is it the fact that I am Maltese
The fact that I have a different skin color and a different voice
The fact that I am smart
The fact that I try to help them with their problems
That I care
That I want them all to be the best
To live happy lives
The fact that my friends are not the cool crowd
The fact that I don’t have soft hair
The fact that I am not “handsome”
Then what?
What exactly
Do you want from me
When will heaven and hell
Stop toying with me
Why?

I guess I want the world to know. Is there anyone that feels the same?
