They left

I was alone

They didn't care

I was the girl no one saw

The girl no one sat with

I was the nerd

I read books

Voluntarily

So to them

I was the nerd

I got good grades

Without cheating

So to them

I was the nerd

The teachers liked me

I always raised my hand

So to them

I was the nerd

They insulted me

I turned away

I cried

When I thought

No one was watching

But she was

And she was my savior
