I will forever and always be known as the 'quiet girl',
the one that does not talk,
is too quiet for her own good,
and is considered weird.
"why don't you talk?" they ask,
"you're so emotionless, talk more."
your words hurt me, over and over again.
why will no one accept me for the way I am?
your very own words make me hate myself.
hate how quiet I am,
hate how I enjoy being in my own thoughts,
hate who I am as a person.
even when I try to talk more, you knock me down with your -
"wow, she's actually talking."
because being 'quiet' isn't cute nor hot to others.
I will forever and always be known as the "quiet girl"
and I f e a r that I will always hate myself for being quiet.
for those who feel as though they are judged by their quietness, for those who feel like no one understands and accepts the way they are.
side note: this is a huge problem I have been dealing with this year and I encourage you to use your words nicely and maybe approach someone if they look lonely. it makes us feel like someone actuallycares about us.
