You Don'T Know Me

Do you think you know me?
No you don't
no one knows who I am anymore
I've changed
I'm different
And I'm tired of the criticism

You impale me with painful words
Only because I am nothing like you
Only because I am different
Only because I am not the same as everyone else

My 'so-called' friends don't say a word
they're quiet, shy
afraid to speak up against them
or maybe they agree

'No one likes you'
I hear that from you
I don't care what you think
Do you think I like you?
The answer is no

What you say is not going to affect me in the future
I won't have to deal with you in 5 years
Just go away
Leave me be

For everyone who doesn't know me
Do not try
For you will never actually know
the real me

Holy shit! ! i feel the exact same way! ! ! ! everyone pretends how they kno me but they dont and they prolly never will. very very good and deep poem. i absolutely loved it
Hello Nicole, it fascinates me how quickly young people mature nowdays. At 14, I wouldn't have the merest notion of love, except for my parents and my older brother. I guess the distance of 60 years makes a quantum leap of difference? All the best, Jerry
Tell me how you really feel! Great poem
