Here I am

Outside looking in

Looking in at all the fun

All I'm wanting

Is what I see in there

Friends, fun, and fancy free

No cares in the world

They have it all

I am left out

Because I'm different

Different from them all

So they leave me out of their group

I act like I can be strong

Like I am able to get along without them

They are safe and secured and warm

I am vulnerable and cold

And no one will give me a blanket

Yet it is amazing

I want to be apart of that world

Yet I don't

Because I see some of the true horrors of it

I can't help wonder

How would I feel,

If I was not on the outside

Would I feel the same?

Would I feel like them?

If I was not on the outside looking in.
