She sits all alone
In her classes and at break,
A lonely trip
To the library she'll take.

No-one speaks to her,
No-one cares,
Everyone simply
Wispers and stares.

Just because she's different,
And not the same,
Doesn't justify
Calling her lame.

She's new and vulnerable,
With not even a friend,
Every day she wakes up
And prays it will end.

Her parents are strict
And won't leave her alone,
Sometimes school is 
Just as bad as at home.

They shout and yell
Till her head starts to pound,
While she remains frozen
Not making a sound.

When she sits in her room
Looking up at the sky,
She lets everything out
And starts to cry.

With no-one to love her,
No-one that cares,
She slowly starts
To descend the stairs.

The tears stream down,
Her face a smudgy red,
She has no intention
Of going to bed.

She slips out of the house
So that no-one would learn,
That she had gone out into the night
And would never return.
