To Be Just Like You - an alien on my home planet

I was born just like you; but I am alien, unlike you.
I bleed red just like you; but have a brain, unlike you.
I look just like you; but act differently, unlike you.
I speak just like you; but think differently, unlike you.
I see just like you; but dream differently, unlike you.
I feel just like you; but express it differently, unlike you.
I need just like you; but I can't relate to most of you.
I want just like you; but you think I am strange as though I am untrue.
I have an IQ greater than most of you; but you doubt whether I can tie my own shoes.
I am bullied by the likes of you; but I still just want to be normal just like you.
It is sad but it is true; to be normal just like you.
