Different

I am different, so I am hated
I am different, so I am alone
I am different, so I am unaccepted
I am different, so I sit on an "outsider's throne"
 
I am different, so no one understands
I am different, so I hurt love or it hurts me
I am different, so I am not a specific "brand"
I am different, so no one sees what I see
 
I am different, so I sing a better tune,
I am different so I am unique
I am different, so I am creative as the month of June 
I am different, so I am an antique
 
So what if I'm an outsider or I don't "survive"?
I am DIFFERENT, not afraid, and alive
