Did you ever fit in?
You tried to.
No one could say you didn't try
but you possessed something the others didn't have.
A conscience worth listening to,
intelligence and empathy, a knowing that came from deep within.
Actually that's the reason
you seemed older than all the rest.
Those childish and silly, always willing to do stupid things,
they would say you're missing out on life
but then what sort of life do they have, with their false friends,
who tend to vanish into thin air if really needed.
Yes you did try
but who's to say their way is correct.
Stay true to yourself,
it's better on the outside.
