But that's right, isn't it?

 

To make fun of me and turn me into nothing more than a joke 

 

It's like I have no emotions

 

And I exist purely for the pathetic entertainment of others

 

The laughs follow me and haunt me 

 

The pushes, things are thrown at me, rumours spread, all because I'm not normal?

 

I don't understand 

 

I'm a human just like you 

 

I lay awake all night, pondering these happenings 

 

What have I done?

 

Am I not worth a friendship? A consoling smile, someone to tell everything will be ok?

 

We both breathe, we both sleep 

 

I don't see the difference between us

 

We both blood, we both cry when hurt 

 

So why do I receive such vulgar treatment?

 

I don't understand
