Misfit – Written December 1994 (Aged 19)


we are misfits
people rejected by the norm
from the day we were born
people who may never go far
but we are here, we are near
misfits is what we are
in the way we think,
the things that we do
misfits, people like me and you
we are the people
who grew up on fear
some of us tell stories
and some of us are weird
misfits and all the best bits
that is what we are
people who may never go far
but people who dream
some of us don’t, some of us do want to fit in
misfits like me and you
we are always on trial
perhaps for things we have not done
misfits, but then, we are only young
