"Sometimes people leave you...halfway through The Wood. Do not let it grieve you...No one leaves for good. You are not alone, for no one is alone." -Into The Woods

How do I feel and look different?
But I am different than you, how?
It’s in my dazzling smile,
My gorgeous eyes
My walking or skipping
As time really flies.
My holiday traditions
With candy and bows
How was I made different?
Only God knows.

I know by now that I’m no Miss America
But I am beautiful inside, how?
It’s in the warmth of my heart
My own tender words
My fly-high spirit
As free as a birds!
My strange way of speaking
As far as words go!
How was I made different?
Only God knows!

I have been called hurtful names.
But I still stay strong, how?
It’s in my stubborn mind
And my own fighting back
As I stand up
For my final “attack”!
I keep to myself
But tries not to transpose!
How was I made different?
Only God knows!

We close in on this poem of mine.
But you can show who you are, how?
You can laugh a little longer,
Or just laugh allot!
Just don't be afraid
And show what you’ve got!
And all of these words,
I’ve chosen to enclose.
How were you made different?
Only God knows!

The author's comments:
This poem shows my personality, and who I am inside and out! I know God knows how I was created, and I know that! People at my school tell me to change the way I am, but I can't do that. I am who I am, and no one is going to change that!
