They call me ‘freak’ they call me ‘weird’

For being myself not a clone

They call me hurtful names

They shun me

And mock me

But they forget

I have a nose

Two eyes

One mouth

Two arms

Two legs

But they forget

I feel the just like they do

In the privacy of my room I break down and cry

As their sharp words

Taunt me

I won’t ever let them see the weakness

I will put on my mask

I won’t ever let them see the damage

Each time I put on a new mask

To hide cracks beneath

Each time they taunt and shun me

A little more of me falls to pieces

But they forget

I am human too

They forget

I am human too

I stand at the edge ready to fall

Ready to die

Sometimes I believe them

As I struggle at the centre of their spiteful games

And I forget too

I forget

I am human too
