I’m done with society; I’m no longer looking for acceptance

This is a poem I wrote when I was 16 years old, I was bullied alot in high school and throughout my life, I actually find myself losing my own desires for marriage or romance I realized I want to focus on loving others, but I use to struggle with loving myself.I wrote this to help justify my own isolation, I wanted to be isolated, I was tired of being hurt and felt as if looking for acceptance was no longer something I needed.We live in a selfish world In theses times even marriage can be used for selfish reasons. Now that I am 22 years old, I contemplate whether, dating church, or any type of fellowship is even necessary. Is selflessness necessary,  and does every person deserve my compassion?On my journey I have discovered I find happiness in knowing I can help others and love others without caring what they think of me. Not every man has to think I’m beautiful,not every person has to be my friend, but overall I have learned to love myself, instead of seeking love from others I first loved God; Then maybe then I can find that special person I can truly open my heart to.

No more trying to fit  in from  now on, I whistle my own tune

no more trying to be cool no more wanting to be like them.

I walk my own path it’s up  you to me now.

weather you want to be my true friend or not.

i’m weird ,i’m strange ;i’m misunderstood

 I wish not be like you but, only  to be myself.

I’m in my right  mind , I  just think a little different .

I am my own idea of beauty

my own idea  of human  because

I stopped caring about being  an outcast.

and became an citizen of my own society I accepted

myself  and I didn’t ask for you to accept me at all.
