What’s it like to fit in?
To feel accepted and approve of, neither fat nor thin.
To have just the right body the girls wanted,
And the ones the guys looked up to.
To be normal and cool,
To be effortless and rule
Conversations with ease.
No need to please,
The others around,
With jokes and banter, intelligence or wit,
In the hop that amongst them you’ll manage to fit.
What’s it like to feel part of the cool crew?
The ones that dress well, got their lives together,
Ambitions, aspirations with many goals to do.
They’ve had relationships and courtships,
Friendships and companionships,
Close bonds they feel with others,
Things they can share not just with their mothers.
What’s it like to just be you?
No mask, no pretence, no alternative you,
Just you, being real, being as true as can be,
Could that, just possibly, ever be me?
