Poem: Differences

We are all different
But that's okay.
There's nothing wrong with
Being different
Except sometimes
People stare.

There's really
Nothing wrong with it
'Cause I just kind of
Ignore it
When people stare
At me.

Sometimes I even stare
At people that look
Strange.
I gotta admit
I do feel
A little uneasy
When people stare
At me.

So whenever
I stare
At someone
I stop and think
How it makes me feel
When others stare
At me.

Then I quit staring
'Cause I figure
They probably
Feel the same way.
