I'm not pretty,
I'm not beautiful,
I'm not gorgeous nor cute.
But I've always found myself different,
Different from the rest.

I don't always like the same music,
Or have the same taste,
I don't always think of what I'll do tomorrow,
Because I know I may not even have tomorrow.

The Lion King wasn't always my favorite movie,
Not at all.
I usually preferred Robin Hood ,
Or my real favorite, Mulan

I write in composition books,
About my sadness and grief,
But I wanted to tell you today,
That I may be something I'm not.

I may not have blonde hair,
People tell me it's light brown.
I may not have blue eyes,
They have an odd tint of gold in them.
And I may not be who I say I am.
Or am I?
I can say that because even I don't know who I am,
But for now, I think I'll enjoy the moment of letting myself be, just a little

Different.
I think I am just a bit, little, tad bit different

Honestly that's just the best word to describe me at times.
I'm different from everyone else, in a good or bad way- I don't know. I've always been somehow older then everyone else, mentally and a bit physically.
I remember talking in the locker room, just before P.E. and one girl in a different row asked, "Is there a guy in here?"
When she saw me she only then realized it was me then asked me if I was in her grade, I said no.
Since sixth grade, I could always be mistaken as a sophomore or freshman. But I wasn't.
Seventh grade- "Can't I just skip eighth grade and go straight to ninth?"
I always fit in better with them, along with my friends who were older than me, but I loved them like I grew up with them since we were in diapers.
Sixth Grade- Year of despair, laughs and tears. Not a good year in general. Okay, that's all my years.
"Why can't I be at least a little bit less different?"


But really, I now think it's my calling to be different.
And I sort of like it, I do.
Because now, I'm fairly happy, and I can hope that happiness lasts at least a year. If not, I'll get back up and try again. :heart:

Hey, I gotta quesiton, and I fe stupid asking.. But how the heck do you make the poem like that? I mean, I've written poems, but how do I get them to be like THAT? You know... With the background and how it scrolls down by itself kinda stuff. How do ya do that? (I feel so stupid <.>)

I believe you're asking how I set it up when I'm uploading it, I assume?
And don't feel so bad, there's nothing wrong with asking a small question. I really don't mind.
Basically you scroll up to "Submit" at the top line here on DA, and when the drop down menu comes out, you go click on "Submit Art" like any other time.
Now, when you get to the page, you click on the button next to "Upload File" that says "Add Text". Click on the second one. Once you do that you can either type up your story/poem completely or just copy and paste it from your Word document on the computer where you've already written it, or some other file such as that like I normally do.
As far as things like bolding and italicizing go, all you do is put < b > at the beginning and < / b > at the end once your done with the bold. Same with italicizing and underlining, but use "i" for Italicize, and "u" for Underlining.

I hope this helps..!

Today you are You,
that is truer than true.

I know.. yes. it can get you into trouble. Generations of men and women had taken up the cause of 'being themselves without having to feel guilt' to get us where we are today and it still needs a few generations of boys and girls to open up everyone's heart and eyes... that is a sad fact.

But we also have the duty to ourselves.. to be us and not stifle ourselves. Maybe we got to do it a little carefully and watch our backs, but you can still have fun doing it. Here's to that simple wish~! :hug:

Definitely.
I'll try being myself more from now on, even though I want to be a better person, more kind and not as violent as I can be at times, it's just how I was born and it'll take time if I do want to become a better, kinder, more caring and considerate person. Even if I'm not accepted, that's how it is.

You'd do great. Everything takes time.. and sometimes the process is so slow that people including ourselves don't think anything it changing but you gonna get there. hang in there tiger. :aww:

lol. well, thank you too. For thinking so! :blushes:
I dunno how old you are hun, but I've been there, where you probably are now. Feeling low about myself, loathing myself at times or cursing or blaming. Angry, frustrated, lonely.. and no boy could get me out of it as I'd thought at first. No.. true love usually comes late in life. So a boy usually makes things worse when one doesn't really know where their head is... But I was willing to work on myself, and so it became better. Over the years. slowly, but surely.
I met better people, let go of the worthless ones... tried to remember the compliments and good wishes of people, and less of the garbage some of them had thrown at me and I got better. I'm still getting better.
Eh.. Idk, why I'm rambling on to you, but it just felt like you needed to hear this. So I shared. :)
Never doubt your ability to be good and do good... its there in your blood, in your heart and time and effort will always bring it out! :tighthug: :heart:

Oh no, don't be sorry. I love helping people if I can.
Actually I've always wanted to kind of be a therapist for those on here who need it, so don't apologize! :tighthug:
And I know how you feel, I'm not sure how old you are either, but I don't think age ever really makes a difference between people, everyone can be friends, it's just about understanding them and getting to know them, the real them.
But it's true, I've learned that myself and from many, many of my friends.
Love will find it's way into our lives later, for now, I have a goal and no ones going to stop me from that goal, so I suppose it's alright anyway. I have a few goals, but my main goal is to find who I am and what I want.
I'll try and respect myself a little more, not be so modest about my work when others see it and tell me, "That's amazing!" just because they've never really seen artwork more beautiful than mine and I know I can never get there.
So what. I'll keep trying helplessly and hopelessly. I'll do what I can. :heart:
lol, for sure. :aww:

you are pretty,
you are beautiful,
you are gorgeous and cute.
you are different, but I love that
Different from the rest.

you don't always like the same music, Or have the same taste,
but change is great. it makes life exiting

you don't always think of what I'll do tomorrow,
Because you know you may not even have tomorrow.
but I wish you had, so I could atleast have a chance of meeting you at least just ones

The Lion King wasn't always your favorite movie,
but I think just the same way
you usually preferred Robin Hood ,
and i did V for Vendetta

you write in composition books,
About your sadness and grief,
But I would love it if you
could talk about it to someone,
i will always be there if you need me

you may not have blonde hair,
People tell you it's light brown.
you may not have blue eyes,
They have an odd tint of gold in them.
And you may not be who you say you are.
but this makes you special, and makes me love you even more than I could have ever imagined
I can say that because I love you, although I dont really know you or have seen you in life, but that all doesnt matter to me, as long as we can talk to eachother without any reason to doubt about saying something yes or no

Different, makes you the most wonderfull person in the world

About your comment "I remember in the locker room..." You're not the only one. Since I keep my hair short, and I'm fairly flat-chested, that's happend to me plenty of times. I've been hit on by chick who weren't even bi or lesbian either, and I've been called dude, bro and even had my younger brother's friend say "Is that your older brother?"
It's frequent enough that I don't care anymore.
And I understand you, because I'm just a bit different as well.

Bothered me a whole lot... If I see that girls ima be pissed at her.
But yeah, it doesn't help with that kind of stuff either, for me- I'm like a size B 36 (I think)
And really.. i was just born with a deep voice, not really a cute, girly, high voice- not.
Whatever. I don't really care if I have a deep voice or not, mine's probably sexier that way maybe.

I know exactally what you mean! I hated those people, but I don't like to stick around with those befalling feelings. Makes me depressed, and I've had my run-in's with depressiong-- ended up with me in a mental hospital for three weeks!
I have a deeper, more controlling voice than many, as well. Not cute, but I can sing fairly.
Imma B 36 as well XD. That's awkward.
I've gained myself a nice ego and confidence, so I can't say that I'm not cute n' sexy, but I have my doubts some mornings.

Ah, lucky. I have no self-confidence at all, and I am and probably never will be cute nor sexy.

If you keep talking like that you'll never have any self-confidence. Try looking into the mirror and telling yourself, "Hello, sexy." Do that without putting on make up or covering part of your face. There' a saying, "If you can't accept yourself, then no one will."

I know, I know. I can't bring myself to it though really..
And I almost feel like I don't need to be accepted by everyone, only by those who don't really care what I look like, a little like my friend, he's a real sweetie.
But I don't dress up everyday in dark clothing and black eyeliner with my hair parted to please anyone, only myself and those who I love and who love me.

We have too much in common <3 Though I don't wear black everyday (unless you want to consider that me wearing my TOOL jacket daily), and I rarely wear make-up. I can agree with most everything you say.

I don't either, just my common sense of style.
And because I'm not allowed to wear my jacket that says Reaper's Crew and has a gun and scythe on the back.
Told me to take it off while I was outside on campus and it was friggin' 40 degrees!

A very good piece... you managed quite well to avoid the cliché such a topic invites.

I especially like the final section (from "I may not have blonde hair" on) and your use of italics for undertones.
