People think I’m lonely,
People think I’m sad.
I’ve been called lowly,
I’ve been called mad.

There are worse things
I could be than quiet,
There are more harmful
Things I could do,
Just because I’m different,
Doesn’t mean I’m not right too.

Books are my buddies,
My four walls are my friends.
Green Day are my preachers,
AC/DC are my teachers,
Dancing out of my speakers.

I talk with my pen
And I sing from the soul,
Sometimes it’s diamond bright,
Others, it’s black as coal.

Summer is here,
I can feel it
Sweating into my pores,
And whilst some might go for beaches,
I go for so-called bores.

So when you see someone,
Nose in a book,
With a faraway look,
Don’t pity them;
For they are in their own kind of sunshine.
I haven't attempted poetry in months, so I apologise for the appalling quality of this.

The issue is these kids lock themselves away in these things to avoid going out. "My four walls are my friends", damn that is depressing.

I didn't. It isn't a coincidence that the people that do this are typically socially awkward.

well yeah??? but the point is that it doesnt make them terribly miserable people and everyone has a different way of having fun, whether it's reading alone or hanging out with people ???

They don't lock themselves away in their rooms because it's just so incredibly fun. Stop lying to yourself.

They kinda do. You obviously have other preferences, but I personally relate to this poem because I would have a lot more fun staying inside and drawing than hanging out with my friends.

You don't get it, and that's okay.
But don't act like you do.
