Out of Place

Out of Place
I'm an outsider looking in
Why do you stare at me that way?
Is it because I dont look like you, talk like you, or act like you?
Or maybe because I choose to stand out.
Then I guess I dont belong in this world you call normal.
If there was a place for people like me.
Anti-social, loners, and others who feel out of place.
What would it be like?
Would they stare at me the way you do?
Or accept me for who I am?
Would they crticize me for my likes and dislikes, like you do?
No, they would accept me for who I am and would become.
The world that I speak of is located were only I can see it.
Somewhere secret were only I can escape to.
