They shine like stars,

I’m the forgotten night sky.

They are diamonds,

I’m the piece of coal.

I know I’m a misfit,


Cliches, cheerleaders and jocks;

parties and queen bees-

I never understood it all.

I’m an anomaly here.

I’ve always been different,

a wallflower.

The kind of person you would never notice.

Nothing special about me…

They are mesmerising words- deep and true,

while I am a single alphabet.

They are honest, confident and dedicated,

I guess I seem lost compared to them.

I guess I’ll always be a misfit,

but maybe it’s not that bad…

Maybe I was born to stand out…

-By Lavanya Gupta

To all the misfits, you are not alone…
