A Kid By The Wall

A lonely kid stands
all alone by the wall
as others pass by
on their way thru the hall.

He never speaks out -
just waits for his class.
Not daring to talk
unless he is asked.

Meeting new friends -
how hard will he try?
He would like to reach out
but he is lonely and shy.

If you want to help out -
in a very simple way -
a quiet "Hello"
is all you need say.

But if nobody cares
as they pass in the hall
he will always remain
a lonely kid by the wall.
