You're way too sensitive, toughen up!

Is what I always heard when growing up.


I don't fit in. I don't feel the same.

On the playground, I don't get invited to play the game.


Preferring a jigsaw and a show on TV

To hanging out in a group, or attending a party.


Crowded spaces made me dizzy and shattered

I'd try to explain, to make sense of how I felt, but it never mattered


As I grew I began hide my true self and act

Creating a confident character, someone who always had my back


I suppressed my heart, my feelings, the energies I felt

I learned to trap it all in with a tightening of my imaginary belt


But I'm tired of pretending, of not being me

I'm fed up of hiding I just want to be free


Yes I'm a sensitive, I'm an emotional empath I feel when you're happy.

And when you're angry, I feel fully your wrath


I get overwhelmed by the smallest thing.

I don't enjoy the pain or the anxiety it brings


So I'm sorry if I'm nervous or I talk way too much.

It's just me, the weirdo! try not to touch!
