8 (who?)
I was just a kid
We all were

But as I grew older
I realized

I'm not like the rest

But we're still the same
Now aren't we?

But you treat me
As if I'm not there

Back talking lies
About myself

And others

So that you may suppress
Your misery

But you're just the same
As the rest of us

But you're different

You think you can escape
This cruel reality


You won't escape
From this crumbling world of yours

If you continue
To put your misery on others

His parents were just divorced

So he enclosed himself
From everyone he knew

From all the things he knew
About himself

He grew up angry

Trying to create oppression and depression
Upon others

So that he's not alone

He's not the only one
Who felt that way

He tried to escape
From shadows and darkness

But he didn't realize
He was a shadow himself

And so
He grew up in darkness

He never had his mother or father there
To shoo away the creatures in the dark

She was just a girl

Who was one of his victims
He called her "Ugly."

It's just one word
But you don't know how it hurts

And now

She's a woman
She's got rights and everything we dreamed of

But she still covers her face with so much makeup
Since she still doesn't think she's pretty

He was sixteen
He was called "Stupid."

"No wonder you were dumped."

And now

Even though he has wife, children
A family

He still thinks he'll never be loved

We're not alone
There's thousands of us

Who became like this

We had oppression and depression
In our entire lives

And it can be because of one simple word
No wonder we became like this

All the negativity in our media today
Just caused even more solitude around us

Since we were just strays

Out in the ghettos exposed to only darkness
And since we grew up this way

We had no hope

That's what we believed

I'm only twelve
We all were

I was never bullied or anything

But I knew how it felt
Since in my heart I knew what people thought when they saw me

They'd think

But just because I'm an outcast
Just because I'm a reject
Just because I'm unique

Doesn't mean I'm a black sheep

I wasn't the only one who was like this
There were more of us

We became like this
Since we believed

We'll always be left behind

We thought
That people will never wait up for us to catch up

But they'll never know why
They won't understand

Why we're still here
We are here for a purpose and maybe you just don't see it

Maybe we can't see it

Even though we are like this
From our birth to our finale

That's just who we are

We're not freaks
We're just special

We all are

We were peculiar
We weren't like the rest

But we all are human

So don't believe
That you don't have a purpose

That you don't have any reason to live

You were here for a reason
You just haven't found it

Don't say you're ugly
You're beautiful

You just don't know yet

Don't say you're stupid
Even if it was your fault

You're not stupid

You could say you're stupid today
And tomorrow you can have plenty of scholarships

You can imagine
You can dream

And if you believe so
That wish of yours shall come true

"Imagination is more important than knowledge."
-Albert Einstein
