I Am Not

I am not weak because I don't fit the mold

I am not weak because I ask for help
I am not weak because I give
I am not weak because I share

I am not weak because I cry
You can't live this life like you are invincible

Being misunderstood is common
Never succumb to other's opinions
So many voices, so little time

Do this, go this way
You can't do this don't you know that?

I am so tired of the underlying current
It's in their countenance
If not in their words

It's as if everyone can feel but me
I'm not sure why

I'm not going to hide
I'm not going away
Please give me time
Please give me space

To process things
To get strong
Without you waiting to throw stones

Everyone is pointing out my weaknesses
When they have their own
They are going around in circles
Completely chaotic with no real purpose

I'm done listening
I'm done listening to the noise

Blah blah blah
Yadda yadda yadda

I've realized maybe they are talking about themselves
I'm the easy target
They like to pinpoint my problems

I'm not like you
I don't talk like that
No one is perfect
When will they see that?
