Author's note: This is my first FB poem, and I hope you all enjoy. The dashed lines equal the divided stanzas.


Everyone always treats us differently.

I don't see why we all can't be the same.

------------

Is it because there is something about us

That make others act this way?

Or is it just because of our outer appearance

That causes them to avoid us

All together?

-------------

Somehow,

I want to find a way

To persuade them to accept me

For who I am.

--------------

I don't want to be different

From the others.

I want to fit in

Like all of the "normal" people

Around me.
