Outlier

There was always
a distance 
between you and them
you knew very well
when you felt
an inexplicable discomfort
those shallow eyes
were the hardest to look into
those unnecessary words
were the hardest to utter
when pretty much everyone
seemed to 'get by'
you wondered whether
your 'clan' existed.
But you always 
ignored your hunches
you spent all your life
covering the distance
between you and them
never realizing
to them, you were
just an outlier.
