Never judge a book you've never read!

I walk around
Invisible to people
Until they want to bully me

I don't belong here
According to people
Because I am different
Aren't we all different
Than we all don't belong here

I don't get it
Why judge me?
Don't people have better
Things to do
Why waste life
Bullying people

I maybe different
But I am glad I am
I don't want to be someones clone
I just want to be my own

Who is the outsider?

The author's comments:
I wrote this because people need to realize that bullying someone is stupid. You shouldn't waste life worrying about other people. If you see someone that needs help instead of being a jerk lift them up with happy words and uplifting words.

All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.

I agree with Bono, you are really amazing at handling issues that go around in the world. And I agree with you on how everyone is the outsider as well. Then again, if I walk in the outdoors, am I the outsider?

Lego ergo sum (Latin—I read, therefore, I am)
The pen is mightier than the sword—unknown
Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity—1 Timothy 4:12

Wow. SOOOO true, though not enough people realize that or see it that way. Based on what I've seen (and I haven't commented on EVERYTHING I've seen) you're incredibly good at illuminating big issues with just a few words of poetry, in a totally original way that makes people look at it differently. Nice work:)
