I Am Different And Love It

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 220 People

    An empty room, an empty girl Sitting silently

    on the floor Her sleeves rolled up, exposing skin She drags the blade and presses in The pain it brings can not compare To they joy, she knows will soon be there It's worth the scars that never heal So just for a moment, she can feel.🌸

    I am a self-proclaimed weirdo.

    I dance in the streets during the rain. Sing out loud. I wear suspenders, weird ties, crazy hats. I dye my hair strange colors. I am random and unafraid of what people think. ;)
