You said

you said I was “too smart for my own good”

You said

you said I wasn’t really part of the family

You said

you said I didn’t belong there

You were right.

Yet…

You said

you said I was ugly

You said

you said I was deformed

You said

you said I was unlovable

You were wrong!

Spew your venom no more.
