Because of the looks they give me when they know the truth.
Because of the words they say when they think I'm not listening.
Because maybe if I tell enough lies, they will accept me.
Maybe I can be normal too.
"No, I'm not different."
"Yes, I am like you."
All these false words just so I can feel like I belong.
I lie because it is safer than the truth.
The truth that I am not normal.
I am not like them.
I am different.
