puzzle piece


im a puzzle piece
from a different puzzle
im different
cause
I don’t fit in with the rest

They know it
They show it
All day at school
I stick out
And they all laugh

I don’t fit in with them
Its easy to see
Ask anyone
They’ll vouch for me
Im different

But its ok
Ive got it figured out
One day when I grow up
Ill find someone from my own puzzle
and not worry bout the rest

im a puzzle piece
form a different puzzle
im not different
im just me
and that’s all I can be

    When every piece does not fit the whole.... I once knew the complexities of your puzzle, you are not alone, stuck in the Teen-ult stage.. it passes, hang in there. You express it here wonderfully - and keep writing about it One Peace at a Time... (Report) Reply
