Don't tell me that I'm stupid for wanting to change my life.
Don't tell me that I'm ignorant for dreaming to be his wife.
Don't tell me that I'm ugly for not being a Barbie doll.
Don't tell me that I'm uneducated because I do not know it all.
Don't tell me I'm a bigot because I don't think the way you do.
Don't tell me that I'm an outcast because I don't act exactly like you.
Don't tell me what you think for I really do not care,
for I only values opinions of the people that were there.

Wow, this is an amazing poem. I love the way it all flowed smoothly, the repetition of, "don't tell me," and especially the rhyming at the end. Great work, keep it up!
