Why is being different appalling?
So many kids judge.
Let different be different.
Treat all equally
Why do we need to hurt each other?
Let different be different.
ADHD, Autism, Down Syndrome, so what?
Amputee, paraplegic, so what?
We are all human right?
Let different be different.
Being different is the greatest gift of all.
Why must those receive punishment for it?
Let different be different.
Let the pain from the computer cease.
Let the sadness from words be ended.
Let different be different.

I have been bullied since the age of five for being different. I wrote thi poem in honor of those who are missunderstood and bullied like me. I want them to know they are not alone and that they are amazing just the way they are no matter what others say.
