Chameleon

Always seeming to be the new kid on the block

Quiet and shy

Blend in with your surroundings

Be a Chameleon or at the least try

//

Too much hair gel

A look Elvis would appreciate

The new kids just teased

A feeling known too well

//

A new color to match the day

Press on and take action

Move slow and quiet

Being dumb, stupid and mean

Somehow felt right

//

The outliers

The “uncool’

The new

They were my victims

I finally fit in, my new school

//

The color of cool

An artificial hue

The pain I caused

I wish I knew

//

One eye on the past

One eye in the present

That was idiotic

I was no better, not cooler

//

Who am I?

One step, two steps

An endless search, a constant battle

The straight line… don’t stray

Show a smile… always please

This typecast I must forgo

//
The Great Pretender
