I am the author of my own life... unfortunately I'm writing in pen and can't erase my mistakes.

'Yes, I'm different!'
I'd like to shout to the world,
Just yell that I'm no ordinary girl,
Then maybe, finally they would see,
It really is good enough,
Just to be me.

It made me think of a song too! So beautiful by superchick. And, well, another one, but I don't know the name so yeah. Good poem!
