Do you think they know?
I don’t think so.
Do I want them to know?
If they did would it all be the same?
I dn’t know.
It all seems alright now
But what about in two weeks?
What about in two months?
Will everything still be the same?
I want to be accepted
Why can’t it be accepted?
It’s who I am
Why do other people get to be themselves
When I’m stuck being me ...
I hate being this way
Why me?
Why not someone else?
But why does this happen anyway?
What causes this?
I’m different, but so are you.
But I want to be different in another way ...

This is exactly how I feel, sometimes, like Why can't I be different in the same way everybody else is? But ultimately you're you and you can't be anyone else other than that. And that's a good thing.

I really like this. I use a lot of questions in my writing too.
