High school can be a different experience depending on who you are.
If your a jock or cheerleader you might have a good one.
But what if your not?
What if your the kid who is so shy, their virtually invisible to everyone else.
Or the girl who cuts herself to make herself feel better.
For some reason these kids are often over looked.
Not just in real life but in movies and TV shows
Adolescence is the time where we try so hard to fit it and for some us we cant be like everyone else as much as we try.
If your a guy your suppose to be able to an alpha male and get any girl you want.
If your a girl your suppose to have perfect hair, perfect make up and gossip about each other and boys.
I’m not saying those people are bad, but there often overshadowed by the outsider.
Like the kid who stays home on weekends, because he has no friends to go out with.
Or the girl who is slightly overweight and wishes she could be a size two.
These kids have a voice, but no one seems to either listen or pay attention.
There the kids who dread getting up and going to school
The kids who get picked on for being slightly weirder than normal kids.
I can tell you how many times I stay up at night wishing I was like everyone else, but alas I am not.
I am the kid who never got invited to parties.
The kid who nobody will remember cause I was so quiet.
The kid who was constantly harassed for being different.
I think its time someone like us to speak up and say your not alone
But hey what do I know.
