Outsider - Poem by Jennie Renee Sparrow

I couldn't tell you the places that I've been,
Haven't seen much of anyone since I don't know when,
Seems like I am always on the outside looking in,
Sometimes I am on the inside looking out at them.

Watching them as they all stare at me,
I am nothing like any of them and I never will be,
Wonder who or what it is in me that they see,
Because my own misery doesn't like company.

They don't know me at all very well,
Keeping my secrets that I won't ever tell,
While this always saves me from other's hell,
I am still me as I watch them live life's fairy-tale.

I will be who I am being me as I remain,
They won't even remember my name,
But I will still be me just as the same,
That is exactly why everyone else is to blame.
