Have you ever felt you're not unique
a human smudge, a blurred streak
indistinguishable from the rest
failing the originality test?
A snake of sourness uncoils
bonds of friendship start to spoil
who I am is what they see
and some other girl has the role of me.
"I saw you in Mrs. Murphy's class."
By that room I never pass!
"Math on Wednesday I loved your hair."
On Wednesday I wasn't even there!
"I'm jealous of your new black shoes."
I have new shoes? Well this is news!
Similar things I've heard all day
I hold my tongue but yearn to say,
"How can you mistake her for me?
Do I lack individuality?
And how can you mistake me for her?
We aren't the same and never were."
