6 Anxieties – Belonging

they talk
about the odd one,
with his funny clothes
and funny words

who no one
wants to sit with,
not the stoners, jocks,
or even nerds

a permanent
outsider,
clumsy, stupid,
and inept

the family he has
can’t shake
the company
not kept

and though the years
have come and gone,
he cannot keep
at bay

the fear of
not-belonging
as it dogs him

every

day
