About the Poem

Life is so full of lessons but one people never seem to learn is about self-acceptance. Just be the best that you can be and most will accept you as you are.

The Loser

They say that I’m a loser
And perhaps that may be true
Since I don’t have a lot of friends
And my interests are but few
I’m not a worldly person
Well versed in social graces
So I prefer to stay at home
Than go to public places
I don’t go out to parties
Or places where you dance
And I haven’t had a date in years
Afraid to take a chance
People always make me nervous
Because I’m rather shy
Lacking in the confidence
To be a stand up guy
I’m not a very clever man
Nor can I tell a joke
I’m neither tall or handsome
And I always am flat broke
I have no sense of humor
Or talent to create
Is it any wonder then
That I don’t have a mate
In spite of all that I am not
I never get depressed
For I’ve accepted who I am
Being second best
They say that I’m a loser
And perhaps that may be true
But if I had to change my life
I’d wind up being you

I loved this poem. It describes how I feel when people make fun of me just because I'm not EXACTLY like them! Wonderful poem!
I Like your poem. It reminds me of myself and how at times I think my friends feel about me. I wish I was brave enough to tell them I think their ashame of me. I enjoy the poem it was very good I hope you find that special friend someday that won't judge you and except you for who you are.
