Beware of resident...

If a man does not keep pace with his companions,
Perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer.
Let him step to the music which he hears,
However measured or far away.-Henry David Thoreau

For a LONG time I have felt like an alien, like an outcast and even at times the forgotten one.
But those days are over now.I have seen the light and I will not stray from it.
But let me just reflect on those times...
I remember being pushed aside like my thoughts and feelings didn't matter.
I remember being picked on for all the small things, the obvious things like being over weight, acne you name it.And by the most unlikely people too.
I remember being shut up and told to sit pretty.
I was told maybe if I relaxed my hair I would finally be pretty.
I was told I was nothing and a nobody when I longed for was to be somebody, something more than this, to have someone to call a friend.
I tried it many times, but because of the great wall I had built up no one would come in.
''Beware of resident.'' 
But honestly something amazing happened to me it came and it hit me, one Thursday night when I was 16. That all this isolation taught me one thing that I can quite capable of motivating myself and that I hear this drumming sound off in the distance(metaphorically speaking) that is undeniable and it has such a unique sound. I am truly grateful for it. And that's nothing to ashamed of !
