that kid (i was)
I was that kid who was never anti-social, but never had friends.
I was that kid who was good at sports but wanted to write instead.
I was that kid who walked around the playground alone.
I was that kid who was always singing out loud, because no one was around to hear.
I was that kid everyone liked to play 'lets run away from'.
I was that kid who was always in your class picture, in the background.
I was that kid who always heard secrets about everyone else.
Because you forgot i was in the room.
I was the kid you only noticed at lunch because you wanted my applesauce.
I was that kid everyone's mother overlooked when they were passing out cookies.
I was that kid whose parents never HAD to go to a parent-teacher conference.
