The lie of normal

I'm an ordinary girl
I tell myself
Just like any other girl
Everyone feels like they don't belong
That's what they say
The grand them of authority
The nameless dominance of normal
It all feels like a lie
A lie from them to calm me
A lie I'm supposed to tell myself
A lie my true self rejects
At least one thing is true
everyone around me
is too wrapped up in their own shit
to notice me losing mine.
