LABELED

 

I am me, I will always be me

I have lived my life as me

 

But when I walked through those doors I was labeled something that wasn't me

something other than me

People decided that label was me

 

I would walk alone and ashamed

My existence was unnecessary

My wishes of a savior

But I was alone

They didn't hit me

They isolated me

They avoid my presence

Faked a smile and walked away

Turned away avoiding my gaze

When words were said

Nothing was pleasant

Nothing felt right

I was an outsider

I was created as the outsider

The person to hate

The one to be stabbed in the back

The sacrificial lamb

others watched

Never stopped watching

But they never returned my gaze

They watched but they also looked away

 

Labeled and left

Bullied and alone

As humans we categories

Something we do too others

We make a class, a system

We label

In the end we decide their title

Without knowing who they are

That was me

I was labeled

I was different

And slowly I was accepted

Someone reached out their hand

And accepted me for me

Not who people thought I was without asking

They saved me

They took the title off my head and labeled me as me

Really, I don't need a label

My race doesn't matter

My sexuality shouldn't matter

My appearance in general shouldn't matter

They do not define me

They are are not me

They just help create me

But it is not me

Only I can be me
