Why am I not like you


Happy Friday!!! Here is a small poem I wrote about how people think I am so different from my parents and the rest of my family. Hope you like it. My other poems are available here.

I like to read, I like to write,
I like to paint, and to be quite.
Everyone says, I am different than the rest of you,
Why am I not like you.

I grew up with you, went to the church with you,
You love to shop but I hate to buy.
Everyone says, I am different than the rest of you,
Why am I not like you.

I don’t like food, I don’t like fame.
I like to be be fit and I am not insane.
Everyone says, I am different than the rest of you,
Why am I not like you.

I fear the crowd, I fear the light,
I hate to step on the altar and I hate to fight.
Everyone says, I am different than the rest of you,
Why am I not like you.
