To define one self means to belong,

To put what others think of you 

Into your own words.

I am what others cannot see.

They say I am beautiful.

They do not see my rough edges.

Teachers say I am smart.

They do not see me struggle and overcome.

Society says I belong.

No one see how I am an outcast.

I say I am me.
