Submitted by Dorcas McIntosh, age13.  I felt like that too.  So did Joan Baez.  So did Bill Gates, I'm sure.  It feels rotten now, but you can be a winner later on!  Thanks for a reminder of how it feels.

A Glass Box

i watch the world from inside a glass box
through the eyes that no one notices
i watch as people pass by smiling, laughing
blessed with the ignorance of not knowing what its like
to be completely isolated from the world
so lonely
i silently pray that i too
could be blessed with that ignorance
but I'm different
too different
but I'm here now among people who understand
and know what its like
to watch the world from inside a glass box
