My Tribe

I belong to an odd little tribe

One of misfits and eclectics,

just trying to survive

These are the people who often go unnoticed

Those who are misunderstood,

and often sadly exploited

But we’ve bound together and here find our home

Lifting up one another,

never truly alone

Because while you have friends,

who are flashy and proud,

I have a tribe

with authenticity profound
