Written by: Caryn King

walking slowly
her hands at her side
she senses the stares
the looks they all hide

she sees all the smirks
she hears all their voices
she looks in their eyes
but she makes her own choices

they think they are better
their own problems amiss
they forget their own issues
and they go on about this

she knows shes different
this life she has known
the way she was raised
the woman which shes grown

different perhaps,
stronger than most
wiser than some
more content than these folks

shes ok with this
she knows it wont change
she knows who she is
and she sees all their games

year after year 
she has learned the same thing
learn to be silent
but dont be too frightened to sing.
