Today in Algebra, as my teacher was talking about "complex fractions," I was completely lost. So when she said to do partner work, I stayed by myself to avoid slowing the other person down. That and I always end up being the odd one anyway. I thought about that for a little while. It's not because I'm an outcast. It's not that no one likes me. It's just that no one knows me. This always comes to mind at such instances. I tell myself all the time that they're not ignoring me. I'm making myself unnoticed. So they unknowingly shun me. And I then came up with the phrase "Accidental outcast" for myself. Then I realized, "Wait… That's a song." I wrote the phrase down in my agenda so I wouldn't forget it.

Accidental Outcast

It's not their fault - it's mine

All I do is hide

So I'm invisible

Even if they tried

I wouldn't reach their sight

It's just impossible

So here I am, alone

Not unloved, just unknown

'Cause I keep running away from all of you


So how could you see me here

Crying out in silent tears?


You try so hard to reach me

I know you see something there

I try so hard to let you in

We don't get anywhere

I can barely find myself

So how could I expect you to?

The accidental outcast

Waiting here for you


What do I have to do

To make them see the truth?

Can't do this on my own

But when I think it through

I guess it's just no use

They could never know

That I just want someone

But one thing blocks their sun

I keep running away from all of you


So how could you see me here

Crying out in silent tears?


You try so hard to reach me

I know you see something there

I try so hard to let you in

We don't get anywhere

I can barely find myself

So how could I expect you to?

The accidental outcast

Waiting here for you


It's not your fault

It's not even mine

These things just happen

All the time

No one can stop them

Especially not me

You can't open your eyes

I can't make you see

I can't keep running and hiding from you

But I can't stand up, so what should I do?

How could you see me here

Crying out in silent tears?


You try so hard to reach me

I know you see something there

I try so hard to let you in

We don't get anywhere

I can barely find myself

So how could I expect you to?

The accidental outcast

Waiting here for you
