Strange things, odd verses

[Eleven, “Stranger things” (Matt Duffer & Ross Duffer, 2016)]

The story is simple: a classroom, a teacher, a subject matter, students, individualities, a task and a touch of talent. The surprise came from Ben Giroux, a kid aged 10 who made a self-portrait in eighteeen lines:

“I am odd, I am new

I wonder if you are too

I hear voices in the air

I see you don’t, and that’s not fair

I want to not feel blue

I am odd, I am new

I pretend that you are too

I feel like a boy in outer space

I touch the stars and feel out of place

I worry what others might think

I cry when people laugh, it makes me shrink

I am odd, I am new

I understand now that so are you

I say I “feel like a castaway”

I dream of a day that that’s okay

I try to fit in

I hope that someday I do

I am odd, I am new.”

[Ben Giroux]
