Different (S**t You Wouldn't Say to Your Teacher)


Humans all can behave the same.

We can look similar,

But we are different, obtaining fame.

Some not, though you think we're all familiar.

We come from everywhere.

From apartments to streets to the hotels,

We come to one place, but our treatment is unfair.

He might struggle with her easiest tasks,

Or she tumbles across his best work.

Some are quick to ask, while others put on a mask.

The quiet ones who are failing only shirk

You because you think we function equally.

Don't you see we learn differently?
