I guess some might say that I live on the fringes of life. 

That's true, I suppose. You might call me the shy one. The introvert. The wallflower. I'm not stopping anyone from doing that because it's true in its own respect.

But I am not ignoring the idiots out there. Sure, I may just ignore taunts or bullies. But know that they're not getting away with that.

If they do something to me, they can expect to read about it in my writing. Sure, they may have laughed when I stood at the center of the classroom and said I write poems.

I might cry, but they're not getting away with anything. I will not stop being who I am. I may be ridiculed for it, but I will carry on. I will express my opinion. I will talk. I will love. I may cry, but no one can take these words away from me. Ever.
