Alex the OutcastAlex the Outcast is what I am. It's what I've been since kindergarten, and I doubt it will change any time soon.No one's ever called me Alex the Outcast, but I think it fits my situation well.For the longest time it seems everyone I encounter in school looks for something wrong with me, and they find it quite easily. The weird way I talk, the way I breath through my mouth, how I look, what I choose to do with my time, the fact I don't talk much, what I read, the hand motions I use when I talk, the way I tie my shoes. It could be anything.To some people everything I do is weird, especially when I don't do anything at all. People have hurt me because of pointing these things out and continuing on about them, and most of the time it's done on purpose.Still, I go on.I have been teased and pushed around, but I've learned to hide my emotions from those who do those things to me. "If you don't react, they'll just leave you alone", people say. No they do not. They never, every do.Sticks

It is a name that people mock. It is a name that does not fit me. I will never be a great protector, even when I try my hardest. I will never be like my father and I will never be like that beautiful girl my mother remembers from her childhood. Even so, there's nothing in the world I'd want to change it to.I will never be Alexandria and I will never be anything else, but I will always be me.I will always be the quiet girl that can stick up for herself if she has to. I will always
