Finalist in the 'The Inside Story 2020' competition

I try hard to fit in but I am different,
My family is unique it makes us different,
I look at my friends we are all different,
In the end life is beautiful because we are different,
I am so proud to be different,

Being different can be hard,
Looking in the mirror my skin colour is different,
Sometimes people ask why I act so different,
you can be teased for being different,
But I am still proud to be different,

Fight with people with different ideas,
Sometimes I am sad being different,
My family is full of different people,
We love each other anyway, even if we are all different,
The world is getting used to us being different,

Same is boring, I am forever proud to be different.
