    Won't Happen Anytime Soon

    I would love to truly be accepted. But I don't think I will be, and that's ok. I know I'm werid, and different. Maybe it's better NOT to be accepted by the rest anyway. but who really knows. I'm me and if you don't like it, then don't accept me. :P

    I Can Feel It. Somewhere Under There...
