icy storm


Alone In a Crowded Room


At first glance this kid doesn't apper 'different'.
He doesn't stand out like a sore thumb.
He is not likely to be the one wearing a pink tie to a black and white formal.

He does nothing to gain attention, but he seems to get it.
He is assertive but knows when to be aggressive.
He doesn't skip classes, or drink at high schools' parties.

He knows he thinks differently than everyone else.
He is an athlete, but doesn't fit the stereotypical role of'bullying jocks'
He is intelligent but not a 'geek'.
He is focused when others are not,
hard working when the world is lazy,
and fearless when the world is afraid.

Mentally he is a non conformist.
mentally he stands alone in a crowed room.
mentally he stands out like like a dove flying with a flock of crows, flying over the pale blue backdropp of the sky.
He thinks differently then others,
But he is nothing more than a 'normal' everyday high school kid.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
