0152 Why Me? [01 January 1998]


As long as I know,
Or remember,
Never had I been kissed
Or danced with.

That one part of my life
That every teen wishes for and gets
Has been denied to me
By something bigger.

Must I ask,

What have I to offer?
A lot of faults
And lies
That make a wall.

The wall protects me
From hurt.
Yet keeps me from
The love of teenagers.
