My head will always hit the shallow end of the pool,

Or perhaps it just drains when I dive in.

I’m trusted no depths of my own:

Wherever I go I am told

I am not man enough

(On one hand)

Or advantaged too much

(On the other)

To understand the world.

Even if it’s true,

(Perhaps it is,

I’m no Other, and I know it)

It makes me wonder why


No one thinks of me
