what ever what ever i do what i want

Just because I'm adopted...
Doesn't mean I'm alone
Nor does it mean my parents do not love me.
Just because I'm adopted,
Does not make me a freak
or make me love my parents less.
Just because I'm adopted,
doesn't mean I wont try in school, and it sure as hell doesn't mean I wont work for a better future.
Just because I'm adopted,
does not make it OK to crack jokes at me, or tell me I'm worthless and unwanted.
Just because I'm adopted,
does not mean I need you to pity me, tell me I'm where I'm supposed to be, or say things will be better now.
Just because I'm adopted,
does not mean my life is now terrific,and it doesn't mean you can act like my past doesn't effect who I am.
Just because I'm adopted- I ask you to look at the person I'm becoming not who I might have been, but who I'm going to be.

The author's comments:
being adopted has taken a huge toll on my life. learning is difficult due to educational delays and yes I am not the brightest bulb in the box, but if you need a helping hand I'm there or if you need a hug because your having a bad day I'm there. I'm not a bad person just because I'm adopted.
