I dare to stand alone

What's left

Only me

Little ol' loser me

A writer

A poet

A broken child

Lost to others

Nothing more than a broken dream

I used to have friends

I used to have dreams

I used to be cool

The Queen bee

Now a loser

Forsaken, alone

All for the crime

Of standing alone

I stood while others sat

'Fore I could not bear to see

Another child suffer in pain

Another child

just like me

Broken bones

Bloody face

Bleary eyes

Emotionless face

I cannot feel

I cannot see

So I must wait

For another child

To take my place

But this is slowly killing me

I used to cry myself asleep

Hoping to die, to finally see

But still I suffer

though I cannot feel

I scream in pain

Though no one hears

Broken bones

Bloody face

Bleary eyes

Emotionless face

All for the crime

Of standing alone

Daring to be different

Daring to fight

I dare to stand alone
