We are so different

But so alike

Everything isn’t

That hard to dislike

But we push forward

We can strive

Our boats float shoreward

Towards good life

This determination

Is our prime defense

Against discrimination

And offense.

Let the bad words bounce off you

And soak the good ones in

You cannot let the bullying get to

Your feelings kept within

Alopecia is a blessing

It cannot be called a curse

Some just can’t help expressing

How they dislike the diverse.

But we are strong, no dismiss

And we can overcome no less

Then climbing out of the abyss

Of hard, cold, pressing aggress.

Don’t be afraid to look,

To see how you can achieve

The respect which many can
