UGLY DUCK

UGLY DUCK

lonely
and pale
skinny
and frail
invitations lost
in the mail
last one
picked
bullied
tricked
words
hit
like stones
and sticks
not
included
demeaned
deluded
gullible
naive
heart on
sleeve
target
scapegoat
lost sheep
without hope
voted most
to be least
ugly duckling
among geese
where are
they now
doesn't matter
anyhow
felt homely
in the cradle
sitting pretty
at the table
in the mirror
a mountain view
bet for them
it isn't true
all actions
reflect on you
not what you say
but what you do
became a swan
forged your own path
now who gets
the last laugh
