One day, 

One question, 

One girl, 

One confession:


Nobody ever asked me why;

Nobody ever stayed a while;

Nobody ever took the time;

Nobody ever ran the mile.


Nobody looked me in the eye;

Nobody looked past my smile;

Nobody looked at my pain;

Nobody looked through my file.


Nobody put for the effort;

Nobody put up with my grace;

Nobody put it all together;

Nobody put me in my place.


Nobody let me through the door;

Nobody let me on that base;

Nobody let me climb the mountain;

Nobody let me set the pace.


Nobody?

No, Nobody!


The author's comments:

I was a little bit of an outcast in high school, and honestly, I still am. I'm weird, quirky, nerdy... Just different. People notice that being pushed out hurts, but nobody really see's the pain of social rejection.
