you live your days on earth like everyone around you

loving, living and laughing, like everyone around you

yet their mirrors show something not quite the same




the way they treat you, talk to you, interact with you

just little, subtle hints you might be just a little off

some thing they see but you dont that marks you




and you start to wonder what may be wrong with you

start looking for ways youre not like the rest of them

ways where youre a little off from the rest of them




start looking for a reason why they think youre odd

some justification for this strangeness that you feel

whenever youre surrounded by them, yet stand alone




not quite fitting in and not knowing why you dont

you see them speak the same, do the same, as you

yet theyre loved, appreciated, accepted, made use of




from how you feel, how they show you how you are

and so you look for reasons to explain this off-ness

because there must be, has to be, an explanation




and you find them, and they make sense, yet you know

youre just digging yourself deeper, like a truck in the mud

capable of much, but stuck in a hole made larger by your
