Being Different
Gioia, Age 13, Birmingham, UK

What's wrong with being different?
Being a loner, not part of the crowd?
So I don't like ganging up on people,
and generally being cheeky and loud.

Does it stop me from being a human?
A citizen of this great place we call Earth?
An equal to everyone else here,
the same rights as you since birth.

Why can we never be apart from a group?
Why can we never be alone?
Life's a tough game, I'll grant you,
The hardest game I've known.

But why must we always be together?
Why can we not stay away?
As far as I can see, we're unique people,
but jumbled, tangled and lost in the fray.
