Have you ever been alone
Without a friend to call your own?
At school I walk among them all
Without someone that I can call
I reach out to them and smile the best I can
But no one seems to care
They walk away or shun me
As if I'm not even there.
All I want is someone to be with or talk to,
Should it matter that I'm not good looking
A gifted student or athlete?
I'm plain and dull in many ways
But my heart still feels the pain
When I lie awake at night
And pray that I might gain
Or at least someone who will talk to me
And not just face away.
I want to belong somewhere
Or else I can not stay.
