Different

Location

Ever since my first breath I have always been different

In the eyes of others that is.

Bullied so ruthlessly I had to change schools.

No one understood me.

No one took the time to.

Lost in my own whirlwind of anxiety and dread

I never wanted to go to school.

I never wanted to do anything.

Living was a chore.

I was trapped in the nothingness that became me.

I was stuck in my own body.

I was a mouse in a cage of felines.

I became so cold

So full of anger

I hated them

 I hated myself

Pathetic

Fat

Ugly

Weak

Unwanted

You will never become anything

Just give up

You are nothing

Words thrown like knives to injure me

DIfferent day same words

I believed them

For a very long time 

I was broken

They had won

In the eyes of others that is

You made me stronger

Beautiful

Different

One in a million

Finally

I am proud to be me
