Always me

Standing in a sea of people
Yet I'm all alone
Isolated from them
I can hear their talk ripple
Passing through me

I'm drowned in happiness
Smiles surround me
Yet I feel sadness
Happiness bounces off my shell
Though on the outside I'm composed
Inside I'm a mess

I say nothing with a wrong intention
Nothing to hurt no one
Then why are my words twisted
Why are my words always misinterpreted?

I ask no question that can't be answered
Yet no one seems to answer 
They treat me with indifference
My curiosity criticized
My questions subject to ignorance

I am silent
Not dumb
I am observant
Not a spy
Yet I'm always misunderstood
Always blamed
Always targeted

Wherever I may be
Wherever I go
I am plagued with the same reactions
To all my actions

Where do I stand
In this land?

Have I no feelings
Am I wrong?
All I ask from all the world
Is a simple thing
Don't blame me
For what is not my fault

Don't ignore what I have to say
Don't push me away when I am near
Don't make me your fear

I am not weird
I am not bad
I am just who I am
This is what I'll always be
And no matter what
I'm always me.
