Nobody can make you feel inferior without their consent. -Eleanor Roosevelt


Everyone thinks of me
As someone that I’ve never been
To them I am nothing
But someone full of unforgivable sin

And those who still love me
Believe me to be lost
Searching for myself again
But to naïve to know the cost

All in all they’ve all lost hope
The one they once knew and loved is gone
Replaced by someone sad and cold
Whose emotions can be turned off and on

I know somehow deep inside
The one the need is there
The only person they gave me a second glance for
Is hiding in me somewhere

If they only knew the truth
That only I can know
They would probably run away
And their faces never again to me show

The truth is this, keep it safe
I don’t want to go back
I can’t be the one they want
The one so full of tact

The young one they used to know
So obedient and would never dare interrupt
The laughing child from whom all found joy
Was forced to grow up

So if you miss me here’s a thought
Embrace who I’ve become
I can’t please everyone so why should I try
Now all I can feel is turning numb


So all who are judging me
Oh well I can’t bring myself to care
All the people I used to strive to please
Are never even there

So to everyone that is putting me down
Listen this final time
I’m not the one you want me to be
So get a life and stay out of mine

Lately i have been going through a really hard time at school. Basically i go to a christian school and i kissed a guy. To then thats a horrible sin and i am being shunned by everyone. Even my closest friends. Honestly, im tired of this stupid thing where people judge everyone else so strongly. Why do we have to be like that. Are we not supposed to love people who are going through a rough time not push them down further... anyway, thats what i think.

“There comes a time in our lives when we do things that we don’t understand. We confuse ourselves, we might even logically oppose our impulses and yet we act on them anyway... There are some things that we feel that we absolutely must do. We might know that they are wrong, or pointless, or gravely punishable, and yet we do them anyway. These actions are not born of anger or emotion – we are perfectly sober. It’s rather inexplicable. When the time comes, we can’t stop ourselves and so we cannot blame ourselves.” -Umasi, Truancy

I feel for your plight. I have been basically shunned by my friends before just because i've been forced to grow up. I hope things get better for you and just hold your head high.
