"Creativity is how you tell everything you don't want to say to everyone"

I am not like them,
I will not follow them,
I won’t do it like them,
I’ll never do anything like them,
Because I’m not a parrot,
I don’t copy things,
Like a copy machine,
I don’t repeat words and mistakes,
Like a parrot does,
I don’t sing the song,
That has been sung by so many,
I don’t change myself,
To be like them,
Them who make mistakes,
Them who taunt each other,
I don’t want that,
I’m not that,
So stop forcing me,
Because you can’t train me,
Like a parrot.

I get compared to normal girls my age, but I'm not a parrot.
