'Being Different'

What's normal to you is perplexing to me
What you see as strange is my daily ruitine
I watch all the glares you think I don't see
I'd like you to stop, but I know you won't be

It's sad, it's a shame, it's truly a waste
That your body remains, still taking up space
That you continue to breathe your spitefull breath
All the years of hatred-can you give it a rest?

You're society, the'in-crowd', the popular few
That fail to realize us outcasts are here too
So from your mouth when hatred is fleeing
Just remember: we're not really being different, We're just different beings

    I really enjoyed this poem. My name is Phoenix and I have ADHD, OCD, autism, I'm Chinese, and at four days old, I was adopted into German family. Not many people know that about me but I'm very use to being the black sheep. But your poem helped me feel like I should embrace my differences and embrace them and never let them go. (Report) Reply

    Hi Margy I'm so glad you enjoyed it! My 'different' is just being on the mid-to-low end of the high school popularity chain, which isn't great.You have to take a lot of crap from people who probably don't even know your first name.That's my different and thank you for sharing :) (Report) Reply

    Hi my name is Margy and I really like your poem and I can relate to it. I have asperger's sydrome or high functioning autism.
    I hope it isn't rude to ask what your different is. I'm new to the site and I submitted my first poem today 'Letting life happen.' If my question is too personal you don't have to say (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
