Even In Such A Diverse World There Is No One Like Me

I am brave and genuine,

I wonder where I would be today without my strength and wisdom

I hear whispers soaring through the air

I see people staring like i'm an amusement

I want respect and vivacity

I am brave and genuine.


I pretend i’m in a magnificent world of unity

I feel the mass of the world on my bare back

I feel fear compressing on my skin

I worry I’ll never be good enough

I cry when the world beats me down till I’m ashes

I am brave and genuine.


I understand I’ll never be able to live up to everyone's expectations

I say to myself everything happens for a reason

I dream of love and happiness

I try to always keep my head held high

I hope I’ll make a difference in the world

I am brave and genuine.
