i ENJOYED THIS AND CAN RELATE A LITTLE. i HAVE SO MANY FRIENDS, BUT FEEL ALONE. I STILL GET FORCED INTO GROUPS, THOUGH. SEE, YOU CAN BE POPULAR OR HAVE FRIENDS AND STILL HAVE NO ONE. SO WHEN I SEE A "NERD" AS SOME OF MY FRIENDS WOULD SAY, I CHILL WITTH THEM ANYWAY.

I wish I could make this travel arround the world. I'm touched deeply by your words. I was once just like you. Evrybody knew me as a happy person, but inside I was broken by the social weight on my shoulders.

I really like this poem a lot and although I have many friends, I try to be nice to everyone and ask a person like the person in this poem to work with me in groups. Even some of my closest friends are disrespectful and I wish they to could understand what is meant by this pom.
