Fit in or stand out?

Should I try to fit in or try to stand out

The answer to this question is always in doubt

When you fit in, you feel at home, not judged, comfortable

Standing out is like being in a foreign place, unable

To read the language- in this case the code unspoken

That binds those who fit in, into a circle unbroken

The code unknown to you, that makes you different

You stand out, which may not be your intent

If you want to feel comfortable, want to belong

But if you want to be noticed, it is not wrong

To stand out, you do not blend into the crowd

You may grab attention without being loud


I tried to fit in awkwardly when I was standing out

Vice versa as well, feeling uncomfortable throughout

Until the simple truth dawned on me

Simply myself I needed to be

Whether I was standing out or fitting in

I needed to be comfortable in my skin..
