I hear the words you say

But I struggle to understand 
I must be different
Because my brain cannot follow this logic
But I can perfectly understand other things 
Things my peers say make no sense 
I must be stupid
That's what they say anyways
Because I do not match their expectations
I struggle
And cannot comprehend these concepts
These cold sterile walls
Contain everything
They don't let the abusive words drift away
I have learned to hate these walls
I have learned to hate this place 
I have learned that I am nothing
