I will never be part of the “in” crowd

That’s just now who I am.

I don’t put on airs or try to impress.

I’m simply me so that’s all you get.

I do what is right, regardless who’s near.

Because being true to myself is what matters.

I choose friends carefully, by what’s inside.

Physical, religious, sexual preferences don’t make a person.

I stand on the outside and look in

I see what others cannot and wish they could.

Pettiness drives me to the edge of insanity

I love with all my heart and soul

If you are right, I’ll stand by you and fight

So, I can’t play the little games others play

I didn’t even play them as a teen.

I’m not a pawn to be used as bait

But so much more like the queen.

So, if you judge because I’m not like you

And because I won’t conform to what you do,

Than you’ll never get to know the real me

And will miss out on a great person, I guarantee.
