Written long ago in middle school…after a setback to my social integration came in the form of a genetic diagnosis.

I stand in the shadows
In the sunlight, in the rain
People see me, those that dare
But underneath

I am one of many problems.
How many more shall I find?
What will happen when people see me?
Will they turn away?

So I hide
Unused to attention.
What if I’m met with acceptance?
I cannot risk rejection.

I dare not face myself
For I do not know myself
And I do not talk to
Strangers.
