Am I So Different - Poem by Ciearra Everill

Am I so different because i lost my hair
is that the reason you feel a need to stare
Am i so different because of things i cannot do
does it make me less normal then you.

Am i so different so different then you
is making me uncomfortable a pleasure for you
If my looks are upsetting to one and all
just try and remember that my life is no fun at all

You see me like this as i walk by
never once do you notice the tear in my eye
its not illness or pain that makes me cry
its the your stares and rude comments as i walk by

So please I ask you
take this to heart
i am truly a human not a species apart
this illness is my burden a heavy one too
if not for a misfortune
this me could be you

My life is now a battle
this cancer i must fight
your cruel and hurtful sayings pains me day and night
instead of pain and sorrow
give me your smile that's true and bright
walk with me through each tomorrow
don't shun me out of fright
