&& I've tried so hard to pretend that I'm something I'm not. Tried so hard to ignore the truth and deny who and what I really am. I've tried too hard to fit in with the people that would never accept me if they knew the real me. In fact, no one would have accepted me if they knew the real me. The real me that I've worked so hard to conceal through the years. But now I'm tired of trying to hide it. I'm tired of pretending I'm something I'm not. Tired of listening to people claim they know me when they don't really know the first thing about me. Tired of trying to convince myself that I knew me, when all I really knew were the lies I tried to convince myself were the truth. But I've learned that it's not worth it. And tonight I come out to tell the world that I have accepted who I really am and the person I will forever be. I now accept that I am that girl in the back of the room. The one with her nose buried in a book. The one with ever-changing hair and dark and grungy clothes. I am that one girl, the one that everyone notices, but no one accepts. I've come to know myself as a Nobody. And you know what, I couldn't be happier.
A result of today's society.
No one will listen.
As you're devoured by anxiety."
