Who Are You?

Anyone here watch "Monk?" Monk is a phobia riddled character who brilliantly solves murders on TV. Well, the ideas of phobias probably seem silly to many... until or unless you're experienced a panic attack. Some have only experienced a few attacks, but if you know the fear, you know it isn't faked. Now the medical society say it is a brain dysfunction, something that is a diagnosable problem. For me it is terrible the way a person who is the least bit different is put outside of life and social interaction and sometimes the subject of ridicule. It comes from fear, a fear of someone who is different and might make us look badly in front of others.

Being different is often something people hide instead of celebrate because many have been teased or ridiculed and feel so different that they’re frightened to be who they are. So who are you when no one is looking?

I am
Allow me to celebrate
The gifts I’ve been given,
Even if you might
Not understand all
Of who
