Based on true experiences...I just thought that maybe I'd put a little thought that's been lingering in my mind out there somehow.

Different...different...have you ever felt different?

Not the good kind of different, like originality different...

But the kind of different that gets you beat up.

The kind that gets you criticized.

The kind that makes you an outcast.

The kind of different that gets you pushed away...

When all you want to do is find somewhere you feel you belong...

The kind of different that gets you bullied.

The kind that gets you laughed at.

The kind that gets you rejected.

Everyday they just want to embarass you and ruin your chances...

The kind that sends you home crying every night...

The kind that makes you think something is wrong with you...

The kind that makes you feel like giving up.

If you've ever felt different

Or you're feeling different right now

I want you to know

That you're not different

You're you...

And you

Are perfect just the way you are.

Regardless of you being beat up

Criticized, outcasted, pushed away, bullied,

Laughed at, rejected, and ruined.

Your tears are not ones of defeat

Its okay to cry

And there's nothing wrong with you

Don't give up.
