You know, everyone’s always moving so fast.
And yeah I’m here,
I’m tense. Everyday I walk
Can’t help but feel
that one wrong move and you’ll lose it all.
Yeah sure, I smile.
Yeah sure, I look cold.
Yeah sure, I don’t look scared.
But I am. I really really am.
I just don’t want you to see it.
I wear a mask. Believe me, I’m scared.
Okay I get it.
I’m just saying this in a poem.
In hopes you don’t
bother to read,
but hoping you
I’m actually here just to tell you
You’re never alone
There’s always someone
in a million people that
try to look down
on you, on me, on us,
on them, on her, on him
And still feel tense and regret
Because they’re not this. They’re not that.
Get this. We are human.
If you can’t do it. You can’t.
It is no one’s responsibility
to live in the standards,
to be a living drone
of the flaws of society
or the stereotypes from
You just be you and I’ll be me.
But don’t *****. Cuz the world doesn’t
always need one. Just be youself,
Really. I mean it. Just be you
in a way you hurt no one.
Not even yourself.

Now, this poem is actually one of my older poems in tumblr and I just wanted to share to all of you that IT IS OKAY TO BE DIFFERENT. BUT SO LONG AS IT HURTS NO ONE AND NOT EVEN YOU IN THE PROCESS.
Thank you thank you so so so so much for the support everyone.
