So What

Life hurts

It sneaks up on you like a raging bee in a dark alley

When you try to be yourself but everyone in your family laughs

Because your hair is curly

Constantly hearing comb your hair or your going out like that

I thought family is supposed to be there for and encourage you to be you

Not look at you with bulging eyes 

I will be me no matter what 

And  all the other girls like me should also say
