Maybe I am misunderstood

Maybe I'm misunderstood 

Or maybe you don't see the good

Or  even the great parts of me. 

I have always been different

But what scares me most is indifference.

My silence speaks a thousand words,

Are you willing to listen?

People always see the bad 

Even when good outweighs it.

Nobody knows me better than myself.

I have beautiful qualities 

I wish you could see

What great person I can be.

Only I can understand myself 

When you understand too

Maybe then I won't be misunderstood.
