dont.

dont try to make me over.
dont try to make me cute.
dont try to gawk all over me.
dont make me become mute.

dont tell me what i do is weird
and different, odd, and strange.
dont tell me everything that's "cool"
i swear, i will not change.

dont try to fit me in a clique.
dont throw me in a group.
for i refuse to change my ways
unless you want uncouth.

dont act like you're my new best friend
or known me from the start.
im not you brand-new christmas toy.
or your unfinished work of art.

so basically just let me keep
my insane, crazy ways.
and please, please, please, please, please, please, please,
just leave me all my days.
