I am a lil weird
Selfish, at times self centered
Kind, at times benevolent
Jealous all the time
Yet happy for others too
I talk fast, having to repeat a lot
Most people don't even hear, they just nod
My parents remind me to talk better
I know I speak fast, but I speak the way my mind talks
It thinks and i speak, I don't take time to make it pleasant to hear
I look older than i am, and that pleases me not one bit
My parents and family, don't miss a chance to remind me of it
It hurts to know that you are not appreciated for being you..
But laughed upon, for the way you walk or look
My friends are better, they mock me sometimes but they laugh with me, not at me
Sometimes, this inferiority, mediocrity kills me inside
And I wish I was dead, rather than fulfilling everyone's expectation
But then I would just be another product of this failed generation
Hence I persevere, and live another day.
Barely keeping such thoughts at bay..
