Beautiful Disaster

She Sits

She sits
In quiet solitude
Feeling so alone
In a classroom
Full of people
Oh, how she longs
To build the courage
To be so bold
As to speak her mind
But her fear
Of possible rejection
Consumes any hope
Of trying
Silently her heart
Is screaming
For it knows
Her potential
But her head
Is louder still
She sees the classes
Of social inequality
She knows that
She ranks low
So her attitude
Is apathetic
Feeling she can
Never escape
Alas it is all
In her head
But those perceptions
Color her world
Her paranoia
Directs her actions
And so with a heavy heart
She sits
In quiet solitude
