Outcast

I attended a Catholic school,
And I was the only Asian in my class,
It was so difficult to integrate,
No one gave me a helping hand,
I was called many names, apart from the one I was given,
Because I wasn't the same as them,
Everyone treated me different,
I began to blame myself for this,
I almost hated who I was,
There were times I wished I wasn't Asian,
As only then, this treatment would stop,
But slowly, I came to accept my life,
I proudly embraced my culture,
I ignored every racist ant around me,
I gave my heart a brand new structure,
Foundations that could withstand the treatment,
And pass it off as a joke,
From that point onwards, I became invincible,
Strapped with abilities to cope,
Life wasn't perfect, but it wasn't that bad,
I battled each day as it came,
I looked at everyone, who disrespected me,
And hoped that one day they would change...
