I am just averageNothing more


I am just average

Nothing more and nothing less

I stand out somehow

Quiet as a mouse

So silent for a moment

Keep it to myself

Treat everyone fair

Choose no favorites or dislike

People need a chance

Prepared what’s ahead

Not looking back for a sec

Ready for my life

Seeking a degree

Wanting an education

To succeed in life

Are we all equal?

Teacher, what’s with the Favorites?

Do we fit your needs?

Teacher, please help me

Don’t act like I am not there

I feel shame here

Why do I come here?

Working there is so hostile

A fight would break out
