The Only One Like Me About

No matter the social situation

I’m always the one standing out

There’s only one real explanation

I’m the only one like me about

 

 

To some that might sound rather great

But it’s difficult to fit in and belong

Being different often tends to overcomplicate

When walk your own path, not the norm

 

 

With boundless eccentric energy

Harnessed by being self conscious

Social skills can fall into jeopardy

All actions, made far more cautious

 

 

It can be somewhat of a struggle

Being the only one like me about

Trying desperately hard not to buckle

And give cynical thoughts room to sprout

 

 

There are moments I give up on trying

When I don’t see the point anymore

It’s not worth the breaking down and crying

From the damage of all the closed doors

 

 

If I become quiet rather suddenly

I don’t mean to cause any concern

It’s not that I don’t like having company

I’m just afraid that I might be spurned

 

 

Why must I focus in on negativity

When I’m happy being myself

Embrace who you are and think positively

Don’t let judgement affect your health

 

 

I like the person that I’ve become

Even if the people around don’t agree

I know I can’t be friends with everyone

So it won’t stop me acting like me

 

 

Resilience must reign, I’m far from done

Cause there one thing of which I’ve no doubts

My life wouldn’t be half as fun

If I wasn’t, the only one, like me about

    1. I have a feeling I may need to move as well…. I have a feeling there might be a geographical element at play.
