They Stare - Poem by jasmine ware

They stare,
When they see me,
Ive wondered for years,
Why do they stare,
When they see my parents,
They stare,
And it lowers my self esteem,
As a child I never knew why people stared,
I didn’t understand it,
And it made me unconfident,
They stare,
And it used to frighten me,
They still stare,
years later,
I figured they would be used to it by now,
But they still stare,
My attitude has changes so much now,
If u stare at me,
It makes me confident,
Because I am the best figure and personality I can be,
And I have the history u’ll never get to have,
They stare,
They talk trash,
And it doesn’t bother me,
Its been so many years,
They stare,
And its old,
They stare,
But instead of staring,
They should put their selves in my place,
They stare,
But don’t understand the discomfort they feel me with,
They stare,
And create hatred,
They stare,
And make me feel like an outsider,
They stare,
And im not excepted,
They stare,
And soon,
Some learn not to stare,
They still stare tho,
And wherever I go I know,
Someone will always be staring
