Don'T Mean Nothin'

Why do people think it's funny
To do things that hurt others?
They seem to think it's a joke.
But it tortures me (inside) .
All my life I have felt
Unwanted, unloved, alone. Been picked on, teased, mentally abused.
Had lies and rumors spread about me
For things I have never done.
Feeling out of place,
Like a square peg
In a round hole;
Unable to fit in.
God, I am just so tired of
All this.
Tired of the pain
That medication won't take away.
But getting through another day
By the 'Nam vets philosophy:
'It don't mean nothin'...'
