Stranger Among Friends

I was a stranger among friends
A thorn in the way
Never felt more out of place
Than when expected to stay

I was a broken piece of mirror
Couldn’t see my own reflection
The fears that came to haunt me
Hid quickly behind a distraction

I was the supposed happy child
The one that got her way
Or did they just tell themselves that
So they could have their way?

I was an outsider looking in
Seeking a place to belong
Perhaps by searching too hard
Is how things got so wrong

I was an almost melted candle
Extinguishing the light as I floated
They expected me to rebuild myself
But alas;

I only,

was.
