I know as well as you do
That you’ve never really fit,
That your so called friends, in all glory,
Don’t really understand it.
I know you’ve been through hard times
And they may have not been told,
At times, because of this fact,
You may seem icy cold.
But don’t forget, when sadness hits,
That no one is meant to match,
That fitting in is overrated,
And you are still a catch.
Sometimes you can be blunt,
At times you wish you weren’t,
And you can try to change that,
But end up getting burnt.
It isn’t you, and in the end,
You’ll regret you weren’t yourself,
Even if, by being so,
You get put on a shelf.
If life was all a chess game,
You would be a knight,
Two steps up, one to the side,
And not an end in sight.
You do not move like other pieces,
All shooting in straight lines,
But you can get anywhere you want
If you only follow signs.
And you know, if we are puzzle pieces,
Not everyone slots in,
And corner pieces only have
The two people that are kin.
And yes your loves are over
Half a world away,
You came this far, all on your own,
But they are here to stay.
It’s been a long and lonely road,
And it has made you strong,
But things are moving faster now,
It should not be too long.
