I am a freak,
A nerd,
An outcast,
A jock,
A prep,
Emo,
Punk,
Cool,
A stoner,
A cutter.

I am weird,
Abnormal,
Gay,
Straight,
A wannabe,
A poser,
White,
Black,
Latina,
Asian.

I am fat,
skinny,
beautiful,
ugly,
scarred,
hated,
beaten,
healing,
broken,
scared,
tired,
dying.

So now I have just one question:

Who is to decide what the norm is?


The author's comments:
Who decides if a person is cool or not? Why do we all let society rule our lives? How come everyone has to be labled?

"In the end, we are all people."
