I walk in the school gates
Plaster a smile on my face
While inside I am dying.

I answer questions
One by one

Whats your favourite colour?
Pink, i say

Whats your most used clothing piece?
Skinny Jeans, i say

Whats you favourite movie?
The Notebook, i say

Whats you favourite book?
I dont read books i read magazines, i say

Have you heard the latest goss?
Are you gonna suck up to your boss?

What are you gonna wear tomorrow on you date?
Will it be that t-shirt that says "Im your fate"?

They smile and laugh with me.

I was sick and tired of lying
The next day
I answer questions
One by one

Whats you favourite colour?
Purple and Black, i say

Whats your most used clothing piece?
My sweatpants, i say

Whats your favourite movie?
Sweeny Todd

Whats your favourite book?
The Sleeping Doll

They ask me
Are you kidding?
Please tell me your joking!!
Are you lying?

They start to chant and scream
Jeer and sneer
Smile at each other and laugh at me

I walk home
The last sound i hear is

"You emo goth, go play with your vampire friends!! Even they would dog you!!" And some other things i would rather not repeat...

I sit at home pretending to be sick
People have always told me be yourself and you'll make friends...

They lied

But then i call up my one true friend and ask her what is wrong with me?

And she says what i tell everyone who has been through the same things i have:

They are snobs, dont listen to them! They hate people who are different. Its good to be unique, love yourself for who you are not who others want to be.

Note~I never let go of those words that healed so many wounds i hope you wont either...
