You are a Person.

You are a Person.

A Poem by Accalia

This is what I said to a group of people when I was high school, honestly I was fed up with group not being able to get over there differences when I said this to them. I don't own the pic.

You are a Person.
Whether you are a emo,
Goth or Punk,
You are a person.
So please don't get drunk,
On the lies that are given
To bring you down.
But I get it-
Because sometimes,
We all want to drown.

You are what keeps
The world from getting lost.
You are what keeps-
You are different without a cost.

Your life isn't a cost
That you should pay-
Because they only hate
Who they are today.

Because the person they are
Didn't think they could change-
So they tried to change you
Because they thought you were strange-

But the truth is, you are strange,
And Weird, And odd,
But that's just cuz you are a person.
For that I applaud.

I love this poem, mostly because it speaks to me personally, but also because if this were to get out to all people in the world, it could change lives for the better. Keep writing. :)
