|Reviews for The Fight For Acceptance|
| Luna Chase chapter 1 . 5/4/2012
I have longed for so long
For your acceptance
Although I do not know why.
You walked the halls
Armed with your serrated words
That you spoke with the sharpest,
Most efficient tongue of anyone
That has ever tried to cut me down.
Your words struck me in the chest
And I could not breathe.
Why would you want to hurt me so deeply?
Was it my clothes?
Did I talk too much?
Have too much money?
Was I too confident?
Did I stand out too easily?
Or is it because you
Just wanted to tear me down?
Just because you knew that you could?
I still haven't figured it out.
It's funny how all these years can pass.
Time can dull some of the pain
And in time the memory fades,
But every time I see you I remember.
You are the only man
That I've ever wanted to slap.
You were supposed to be my friend,
Instead you chose to leave me to bleed out.
Scraped me off of your Converses like bubble gum
Left in the street to mold.
Why would you be so cold?
You didn't comfort me when I cried.
You rejected me like last year's music.
I wasn't "cool" enough to hang with you
And your beautiful flawless crowd.
Instead you shivered
Whenever I walked down the hall,
Kicked me when I was already down,
Tried to turn my friend against me.
You liked to think that you knew who I was inside.
But why don't you come into the light?
Show me that there's good in everyone.
Let go of your stupid pride and say sorry.
You never really knew me.
You had a choice so why would you
Do that to me?
I trusted you.
You have no idea how
Deeply that you hurt me,
And I'm not going to tell you.
Instead I'll take the high road.
I'll admit that flicking you off
And telling you to go to Hell,
Didn't fully heal the hurt inside.
Oh it felt good at the time sure,
But it didn't give me the closure
That I was hoping for.
Only forgiveness will do that.
So if you want it it's here for you.
If not then I sincerely wish you the best.
-Luna Chase :)

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

Hello River darling :)
I know that we said that we wouldn't review each other because of how silly it is, but I want to tell you how awesome your poem is:)It speaks the truth about being different in a way that's simple, and yet it still hits home. I haven't thought of any stories to add yet, but the poem is awesome, and I want you to know that I love you girl. :)

Hi i'm Syx Adele(Pronounced Six),
I get teased about my name,but i have a different matter in hand too discuss.I am hetrosexual myself however i have nothing against those who are not.I believe diversity is beautiful and discrimination is the creater of uglyness.
I and many of my friends place ourselves on a slightly different spectrum,We are Goths and Emos and that is who we is stereotypes that surround us are so damaging! We do not follow stereo types or listen to such is our choice of music, clothes or even way of excpect us to be so emo friends are teased daily and regularly on the subject of self harm!And myself on satanism and is not right to say that if we describe ourselves with certain words we should be discriminated against!We are the same people inside. We scream for acceptence. Everyone on this planet is human...That is a huge thing to have in commom,we should accept that and STOP DESCRIMINATION! We are who we are...
ACCEPTANCE IS BEAUTIFUL...

as they pull my hair.
as they dig their nails
into my skin
carving the word Different
sneering like its an eternal sin.
I try to rise
to stand against them
but my legs wobble
under all the prejudice
and i find myself becoming silent
numb with acceptance
that there will never be any acceptance
left for me.
Post it, Idc.

Thanks for allowing anonymous review, I doubt i'd have the courage to do this on my real account. I haven't really admitted this to anyone yet but I think Ima lesbian. I love looking at girls, the essence of them, but ima so scared that I'll be bullied for it. What should I do?

Heyey, Rach/Riv! Anyhow, good idea btw, my topic is on the supposed "supernaturals/psychics" A lot of people doubt their existence but if someone walked up to us with legitiment proof would we be able to accept it? Just something I've been thinking about. What if humans aren't the Big Honcho as we believe, ya know.

First of all I lurve this idea, nj! My topic is Special Needs. I absolutely HATE when people use the word retarded. My little brother has Autism and when we're just walking down the street people point and laugh and it makes me so angry. And the worst part is that he doesn't even realize their making fun of him, he's alway in his own little world. I love him alot and I just wish some people would grow up. Like you said, River, being Different is beautiful and we are all one people.

Thanks for this. I'm, personally, a homosexual and I have no problems with straight people. It makes me angry that people think that just because we are Different that we should be treated like pariahs, like seriously. It's not like i ever infringe on your koolaid so why should you splash hateraid at us?
