Feelings of an outcast
Sitting alone in one room
Day after day passes.....
Weeks turning into months
Standing here thinking - wondering why
Why must I be hidden
Hidden from the others ! ~
Are my clothes too ragged ?
Lacking in manners, perhaps ?
Has this made you ashamed ?
See you only when it's convenient
Never on holidays or special events
Afraid to ask why
Assuming you will lie ! ~
Be not ashamed of me
I'm a voice who'll speak for you
Your arms of ardent warmth
I'll be your defender for years to come
Yet this loneliness overpowers my mind
Sadness has striped my pride
Making me feel less than whole ~
