An Outsider

By: Alyx Delgado

My outside a shy, colorless human being
Soft spoken and gentle as can be
How I appear “perfect” and “flawless” as can be.
However my only flaw may be how I have another person
Wanting to be set free...

The Inside of me stirring and churning wild as can be
Looking and searching
Seeking a way out
A path out to be that wild girl spoken of, but never seen
To simply be set free into the jungle of the world
I’d have pals and buddies, even a set group of friends
How outrageously crazy that would be

O’ well that’s all locked up inside of me
Now back to perfect little ol’ me
Not a tear can be seen
Not a wrinkle on me

Yeah I’m sure that’s me
