A c c e p t a n c e

Eyes shut, voice dry,
Misery on my mind.
My thoughts drift back to a time of sorrow --
When people stared,
When people glared,
Voices whispered
and all I felt was despair.

Stop staring at me as I walk by,
All I want is a simple "hi".
People look at me like I'm a monster.
On the outside maybe I am,
but on the inside I am just like you.

Tears keep flowing down my face.
Judging on my weight and race,
No one knows me for me.
They only know about what they see.

Let these worries go to waste,
Forget about what they say.
You are you
And that can't change
Love who you are
And just be the same.
