Democrat, Republican, IDGAF

Location

"What if we didn't go to war?" I accidently ask in my Junior econ. class

I feel my classmates eyes on my back,

I sit in the front for a reason.

"Hippie! Go to california you Democrat" I hear a student say to me.

The want to punch him in the face breeds inside of me,

but I do nothing.

This is the usual routine,

I live in a conservative place,

the good 'ol Cowboy State.

It's odd I came out this way considering my parents are Republican.

I am not a Democrat though, I am Independent!

I feel judged and so strange.

Why can't I be part of the norm?

I was born this way and I have to stay this way,

I guess..

stuck with "What's wrong with me?"
