Thank you for your labelsYou labeled me a freak.Thank you for your labels6 years ago in Spirit Day More Like This
I called you blind;
you couldnt see yourself.
You labeled me a loner.
I called you selfish;
Never wanting to share your friends.
You labeled me weak.
I called you scared;
Fearful to face me alone.
You labeled me a mistake.
I called you brash;
Too vain to see your own flaws
You called me gay.
I called you wrong;
Youre just as normal as me.
Yet whatever you labeled me, it washed right off.
Because Im a freak; we have an amazing sense of self-worth.
Because I am loner; I found myself in peaceful solitude.
Because I am weak; I have you to thank for my inner strength.
Because I am a mistake; I challenge myself everyday to be better than I can be.
Because I am gay; I know youre just scared of what you dont know.
Thank you for your labels!
