For Those Who Don't Know Me

For Those Who Don't Know Me

Please Listen Closely

I am a person of flaws 

And I am lost

 

I hide my identity behind a wall

I look strong but I can easily fall

My greatest fear is losing to myself

That, to me, would be the greatest loss of all

 

No one talks to me

It's as if I am a freak

I feel hated and ignored

Should I hang myself by a cord?

 

Forced to get good grades

Stressing everyday

If you will give me a chance 

Or look back with one glance

 

You will see I am not that bad

And I would glad

But people don't do that

They just call me fat

 

A world so beautiful 

It can be so cruel

I get laughed at, teased, and debased

Is it because of my race?

 

Friendship begins with two strangers

Just come up and talk 

I won't mind

 I won't be shocked

 

People need others around them 

Or they feel condemned

So help me out

Give me a shout
