Sometimes when I'm in class,
I feel annoyed.
It's too loud,
It's hard to talk to people when they're not listening,
Hard to listen when they're all talking.
Sometimes I feel lonely in a big crowd.
When their jokes include my name,
I can't laugh.
When they say I'm to blame,
I can't cry.
But sometimes when I'm giving up,
With a bit of help,
