If You’ve Ever Felt Like You’re A Misfit, This One’s For You

When you don’t fit in,
You’re forced to figure out who you really are.
All that time you spend alone,
Makes you familiar with every fiber of your being.

She’s a square peg, Somebody with an edge,
She never fit into a world of round holes.
She’s always been on the outside looking in, never really part of things.
Not at school, not at home, not on the playground.

He’s always the last to be picked,
Always the first to leave a party.
He makes books his best friends.
He tries so hard to find meaning.


She hides behind paper and ink,
Feeling everything, and yet saying nothing.
Her opinions are not welcome anywhere.
Her words are misunderstood.

He finds small talk unnecessary,
He finds himself left out of plans.
Even in a crowd, he’s all alone.
He’s never quite found home, yet.


She can’t seem to stay in the moment,
Wondering what comes next, the missing piece.
They laugh at her, her dreams, her fears,
No one shares her world.

His every move is questioned,
His passions, disapproved.
It’d be nice to have someone understand his jokes.
It’d be nice to have someone understand.


She and he have never belonged anywhere,
Belonging only to themselves.
Until they met.

They belong together now.
