What I Am

I am different
I wonder if it's worth it
I hear a laughing jeer
I see smiling faces
I want to be a part of it
I pretend to be deaf and blind
I feel no more pain
I touch my own tears
I worry about what people say
I cry for myself
I am different and now I feel free
I understand my role
I say my lines
I dream my own world
I hope to be famous
I will be a legend.
