I do not belong, knew it from the start-

out of place among the ones to claim me

open arms full of love for which I retaliated,

pulled away and walked my own.

Out of place with the ones that used me

my innocence tree of life defoliated

scarred in places I can’t even see.

I do not belong for I felt a stranger

among those with skin and words alike

kin cells from roots I called my own.

I belong only to memories left in the sand

footprints left to fade away

scattered through the places I like-

I do not belong among the things I want

but only in dreams did I find a place

and felt safe and complete.

And once life my hopes deplete

in death I will find my way

to the place where I belong.
