I try so hard, very hard!
I work hard to make people see who I really am,
I work hard to make myself as interesting as possible,
But somehow it just doesn’t work!
I feel like a toy,
And very soon forgotten.
I try to be social,
to be seen,
But why is it that I am still ignored?!
Is it my looks? Am I not pretty enough?
Is it my humor? Am I not funny enough?
Don’t worry! I’ve found another way to be accepted into your impenetrable circle.
Back home, I created this profile where I can be whoever I want to be!
I can be cute, I sound funny, I even look pretty!
I give people a chance to read what they want about me.
I use this profile as a new identity for my already existing dry one.
But I have hope. An original one.
I hope that every one of you see me one day, not of the information I feed online,
I hope that you find beauty in my flawed personality,
I hope that you know me not of the information I feed online, but the real me.
The me who I want people to know.
But most of all…..
I wish that we can learn to accept and acknowledge those who are of a different hue,
and definitely not just by a request we get online.
