I have been wondering my whole life,
Wondering why one size fits all
Doesn’t fit me.
Wondering why the other girls didn’t want to be friends with me,
Why I was called weird
Why people gave me glances out of the sides of their eyes.
I tried to blend,
To dull my vibrant color.
I tried to scrape the diamonds off my skin,
So that I would not stick out.
After years of trying,
There was not enough bleach to drain my color,
No knife was strong enough to cut the diamond.
I sat and cried, pleaded for normality,
However it was not provided.
So I am stuck with me,
But maybe I am not,
Maybe it is others who have made me feel stuck.
Now I can see that I have been blessed,
Blessed with a personality that sticks out,
With colors that shine in a sea of white.
There is no one else i would rather be,
I have fallen in love with the rainbow,
That is me.
