"Begin at the begining and go on till you come to the end; then stop"- Lewis Carol's 'Alice in Wonderland'

There came a time in my life where I wasn't afraid to admit it
I'm not marvelous
or amazing
I'm not unique
or magnificent
I'm just Connor.
A six lettered human being.
A parasite that grew too large.
A fault in the status-quo.
But I, I am an innovator.
I am a mistake
created on accident.
But I never make mistakes.
I am a cold heart.
I threw away the bible
and opened my arms
to those who wish to feel my embrace.
I am Connor
and that's all I will ever be.
I am nothing
but me.

Wow, this is great.  I just have a bit of criticism.

1.  In some places you use punctuation, but you don't really at the beginning (ie: 'I'm not marvelous or amazing/I'm not unique or magificent').  You might want to keep it consistent.

2.  'bible' should be capitalized.

Other than that, this is a great poem!  I can really feel the raw emotion behind this and I think a lot of teens can appreciate its message.  Great work!
