Who I am

if you want to know who I am just ask all the people at school
since they all seem to know in their own minds.
If you want to know who i am just ask all the doctors...
yeah they think they got it figured out.
If you want to know who I am, just take a look at my wrists
or watch me in a crowd
If you want to know who I am, ask all the guys, all the guys
who never paid any attention to me or wrote me off as a freak
If you want to know who I am, ask my family, the family
who barely knows the real me
If you really want to know who I am, ask me...don't judge me by appearances

This is for all the people who are too afraid to speak up.
To everyone reading, make sure you get to know somebody before you judge them, you don't know the damage it causes until its too late

This poem resembles the quote "Don't judge a book by its cover." It's a well spoken poem with wise descriptions. People should look into getting to know someone, before they judge them. Some people just don't understand the damage they do to others because the damage has never been done to them.

Through your words,I guess you have a sweet heart.But most of the guys don't notice what you are.They just judge you by your appearance,and think you are not ..... Anonymous ,you should ignore them .Go ,move on and be cool.You know your friends are back you here even when you are alone .

wow... echoes my thoughts. I hate preps at school who judge you cuz your not rich or totally gorgeous. I'm new at school and everyone so far has judged me before even knowing me and I get treated like crud every single day
