"Live life like a musical: sing your heart out, do your own little dance, and ignore all of the laughter in the audience because they're all idiots who have no idea what's really going on anyway."

What people never, ever see
Is who I really am.
I am someone who always will
Do everything I can.

What people never, ever see
Is what I want to be.
Of all the great things in the world
I just want to be free.

Free from lies,
Free from dispute,
Free from problems
That don’t compute.

Free from stereotypes,
Free from groups,
Free from life’s
Big turns and loops.

Free to laugh,
Free to dance,
Free to try
And take that chance.

Free to sing
And free to be
The person I am,
The person called me.

The author's comments:
For as long as I can remember, I've been made fun of. I've been ditched by so many friends that it isn't funny anymore, all for reasons like "You're too anti-social. I wanna socialize" and "You don't trust me" and even "We just have nothing in common." Well, I was never boring, they just never gave me a chance to show them who I was. I didn't trust them because I met them not even a month earlier. And it didn't seem like we had much in common because they never took the time to get to know me. This poem was inspired by the ignorance of everyone around me, and hopefully I'm not the only one who wants a chance to show the world who I really am.
