"The books that help you most are those which make you think that most. The hardest way of learning is that of easy reading; but a great book that comes from a great thinker is a ship of thought, deep freighted with truth and beauty."

People stare,
They stare at me,
They taunt and laugh,
They laugh with glee,
Their eyes like daggers,
Eyeing my soul,
I have a toll to repay,
And they have a goal,
I am their prey,
I am different too,
They always say,
I’m not like you,
But is that so bad,
That I am who I am,
And may I just add,
Do I give a damn?
I stick up for what I believe,
I don’t follow like the rest,
Am I supposed to grieve,
For not passing your test?
This is me, myself and moi,
What is your problem?
Je ne sais quoi?

The author's comments:
In ways I can relate to this poem. I used to get bullied in school and I have no problem with admitting that. The problem lies with the bullies not the victims. So I thought I'd write a poem about what it's like, it's almost a poem to the bullies, telling them that it's alright to be an individual and it's a poem to victims, telling them to stand up for what they believe.
