Knives and batons.

You’ll use anything

Just to feel like you belong.

To be a necessary part

Of a group,

Not a sad loner with an empty heart.

You’ve no real identity,

Making it easier to swim

With the others in the bland sea.

One day you will find

That the key to confidence

Is deep in your heart and formed by your mind.
