 I can't run the fastest
I can't swim the sea
I can't type the quickest
but I love being me
 I can't kick a ball
or even climb a tree
I can't roll in the grass
but I still love being me
 You see, this is my life
as others would see
they don't know what it's like
to really be me
 So next time I'm about
rolling down the street
don't think of me disabled
but someone cool to meet
 I have lots I can teach you
I have loads I can share
you will never gain my wisdom
if you just point and stare
 So maybe I can't run the fastest
maybe I can't kick a ball
but I wouldn't change being me
not for you, not at all

The thing that inspired me was my friend. She is so tied up with trying to be who high school wants her to be and not what she wants to be.

"you can close your eyes to everything you do not want to see, but you can not close you heart to things you do not want to feel"

to put it simply, this is great. it feels like such an understatement because it really captures a certain emotion and projects it into the reader. that and it also made my day. this means alot, thank you for sharing
