What Do You Know? - Poem by mona martinez

you talk to me,
once in a while,
when i'm feeling happy,
you find a way to bring me down,
what the hell?
am i not good enough?
to be accepted in this world,
people look as if i'm different,
so what if i am?
why should you care?
for the longest i thought
that was important.
who was i kidding?
i don't need you!
want to know why?
along the way,
i found who i am,
call me crazy,
but, i'm glad i'm different,
what's you excuse?
trying to be the same,
as everybody else,
how is that working?
that's not me,
i go my own way,
jealous of who i become?
a girl who is strong,
because of the stuff that was said,
i realize your opinion shouldn't matter,
you not important,
i am!
why should i care,
what you think?
in the back of my mind,
you still got some work to do,
to accept all of yourself,
because trying to fix me,
won't complete you like you think,
i found myself alone the way,
let me know when you do the same.
