Walking down the streets
Trying to ignore the glances,
The glares, the laughter
That surrounds me
It doesn't bother me anymore
I'm used to it by now
Doesn't matter though
They won't get over it
I could never be like them
I could never conform to their ways
I need to be my own person
No one seems to understand
Nothing they say will affect me
I want my time here to be meaningful
I am my own person
I don't need to follow their ways
It would be untrue to who I am
Nothing they say will penetrate me
I do not need their approval to be me
