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!
