Will You Accept?

Don't deny the different.

No one's the same.

No one knows everything.

No one sees the world the same way.

We're all different.

But do a lot of people accept it?

They should, but they won't.

Some people go down a path,

Of behavior they're used to.

Others are forced away

To a path of normality.

For some, it's for the better.

For others, it causes sorrow and silence,

Of how they, no, WE see the world.

Simple things, like talking to ourselves,

Focus on one thing,

Or simply dreaming,

Seems as dangerous as Voorhees to others.

One person tells the scared one,

That they're not the only one,

That does such behaviors.

The scared one believes, as long as the behavior stops,

No matter if they lie and say the person's the only one,

No matter if they keep the person scared of ideas rejected,

Their world will be okay.

We have our different views for a reason.

Will you accept that fact?

Because you can't deny it anymore.
