I also have another "Loving someone is like hugging a cactus. The harder you hold the more it hurts"

I talk, but no one listens.
I sing, but on one cares.
I walk in and people turn away,
Shunning me,
hating me for being different.
For acting like myself.
No one would care if I died.
They'd probably be happy if I did.
They despise me,
loath me.
Just because I am different.
Because I don't act like them.
Because I express who I am.
I act how I want to.
I smile,
and sing.
Play and run.
I am a rebel,
and I am proud to be one.
I would hate to be them.
Acting the same.
Being the same.
Doing the same boring thing,
day in and day out.
I live life.
While they are only in it.

The author's comments:
Everyone has to act like themselves. However they want to act and look like. Even if the rest of society doesn't agree with what you do, like or are. That is their problem. Be who you are, don't be how people want you to be because then they will never know the real you.

I know exactly how you feel. When people say to me "Just be who you are" I have to suppress the urge to laugh because deep inside I know that no one really wants to see the real me. I think that "they" are secretly jealous of us rebels because we are the only ones that have enough courage to be ourselves.
