    The Riceball In The Basket Of Fruit

    Everyday people make it more clear to me that I'm a nobody. I'm no one special. I'm no one worth associating with. I'm no one fun to be around. I'm too this or I'm too that. I'm never good enough somehow. I'm very quiet, shy and nice. So just because I'm not outgoing and happy...

    I remember all their smiling faces around me and thinking of how I could not fit in more perfectly.  A few years later I remember all those same faces around me but they all seemed distant and distorted as I realized that I no longer fit in at all.
