She always held her thoughts back
Because well, who wants to hear the opinion
Of the new girl
So she sits silently
In the back of the classroom

Intelligence, when suppressed
Ceases to exist
Her mind grew differently than all the other kids
Because she sat silently
In the back of the classroom

Finally comfortable, she begins to speak
But then she's uprooted, moved
To a new place
Once again she's the new girl
In the back of the classroom

This happens so often, she's afraid to make friends
After all, who cares about the new girl
In the back of the classroom?
Will she ever stop being the new girl
In the back of the classroom?
I have been the new kid in so many schools, and it is so unbelievably uncomfortable. Especially when still in elementary school. Now as a freshman in highschool, I had to switch not only schools, but states again...

I'm going through the same. But I hate where I am now, so moving is going to be great for me.

Moving on the 15th :) I'm so happy. This time I'm not gonna try to open up to people. I'm just gonna stay as the kid in the back of the classroom.

yay :) and you might be different but, I always say that, but I end up making at least one friend, don't  open up to everyone, but don't shut them all out either, that can feel even worse

I know. Ive lived my life like this. The real antisocial. Always shut everyone out. But opening up can hurt more. We all take to this life differently.

I'm pretty much the same way, my best friend only became my friend because he went out of his way to get me to talk to him

And that's how most take to it. I take it a bit differently. The people who try to go out of there way to talk to me, usually end up hurting me. So I avoid that.

This sounds a lot like my life; I was always the new guy, moving to several schools per year, seeing so many people and living in so many places, but never being able to make friends without moving away :/

Dang D:  That has to suck! (after spending most of my life on the road, I've gotten used to having to move even though we had plans on staying; in my case, almost everything that is planned gets all kerscuffled and nothing goes the way we planned it :/)

I know how that feels :/

I hated being the new girl, so I always make an effort to reach out to the new kids.

That's pretty unfortunate - I know how it feels to be torn from your friends and having to make new ones. I've had the same experience a couple of times, though it never ceases to amaze me how friends are formed - it just seems to happen...

At least these days its not so easy to keep someone away from their friends, with the internet and all. :)
