"Who am I? What do I stand for?" I found these opening lines so intriguing. The first question reminds me of the 'I am' statements that we all try to come up with to define ourselves. The second question, though, is my favourite of the two because it implies that one has a moral conscience - 'what do I stand for?' will quickly lead to 'what is my purpose?'
"I am the only 'me' I know how to be." I really like this line - the speaker suggests that their feelings are very 'natural' (even if others think they're 'different' or 'wrong'). The message in this poem is very powerful: accept others and practice tolerance. :)
Keep up the great work,

Subject- I really like the message you have in this poem, the fact that everyone should be loved for who they are. The idea of individuality is a bit cliche, but it is still a nice thing to write about. Like they say, and oldie but a goodie.
Rhythm- Your beat was smooth and pretty much constant throughout the piece. The lines meshed together well and gave it a good tempo without rough transitions.
Word choice- The word choice was fairly basic, but it was effective nonetheless. They were not too wordy of complicated, just short and sweet and simple.
Technical- You made good use of repetition and magic three in this poem. I like the lines "To confuse me? To confine me? To control me?" as well as "Misunderstood. Confused. Disliked." They had impact on the overall sceme without getting irritating.
