I Am My Own Person

Inspired by ichipup's Normal.

Created by meepet on Wednesday, March 16, 2011

I am my own person.
I refuse to be like anybody else.
I want to be unique,
Even if it means being considered a freak.

I am my own person.
I ignore your scowls and whispers of "She's so weird."
What is normal?
To you, is normal being sweet and kind and caring all the time?

I am my own person.
I'm not always happy like what you consider normal.
I get depressed, lonely, and I'm not always nice.
I do not sit on the sidelines. You'd have to kill me before I did that.

I am my own person.
You think girls should just be shy and not say anything fierce.
Sorry, but that's not me.
I stick up for my friends and yell at people who treat me badly.

I am my own person.
Not like you, or your standards of normal-ness.
My soul is not like yours.
I am accepting to those who are willing to accept me.

I am my own person.
I embrace my differences.
I embrace my dark, lonely side.
It's too late for you to see me for who I am.

I am my own person.
I don't put on a mask.
Give me one reason why I should smile for someone like you.
Give me a good reason to act like someone I'm not.

I am my own person.
I may not be the best person,
Or even a good person,
But at least it's better than pretending.

I am my own person.
I suck at sports, I'm good at art.
I feel upset and I feel happy.
I think weirdness is better than normal-ness.

Because I am my own person.
