This Is Me This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   This is me.

My clothes, my thoughts,

my manner.

You can see that

maybe I'm not like

you, exactly, but

I am a person

I hurt, I think,

I feel.

Don't you think your

comments hurt me?

I know what you're

saying about me.

Don't pretend I

can't hear.

Don't you think

those withering glances

hurt me?

Don't pretend I can't see.

But I can't change

your mind. This is me, and you

must accept me like this, because

I won't change. This is me.
