I wish I was a monster
So I could be kind
And break the stereotypes.

I wish I was colored
So I could respect people
And break the stereotypes.

I wish I was a man
So I could be kind to women
And break the stereotypes.

I wish I had male friends
So we could all be..
Just friends
And break the stereotypes.

I wish I had autism
So I could prove that autism,
Does NOT mean "dumb".
And I could break the stereotypes.

I wish I could change the world.
But sometimes, you can't break a stereotype.

Only stereotypes, can break you.
<3 Writer's block went bye bye :)

I'm colored, and it seems that the stereotype is that I don't speak English. I don't want una plastica bolgeta, I want a paper bag. It's very annoying when I can't understand what I'm being asked because I couldn't say bag in Spanish.

Yeep...the last one is a good point. Some psychologists think I might have autism. I'm getting tested soon. I got really mad at first because I tjought I was getting labeled with other people considered dumb. But I learned that it just means I comprehend things DIFFERENTLY, not necessarily SLOWER.

Sticks and stones may break my bones,
But only words can break my soul.

I'm a mistake
And I know it

I'm a failure
And I embrace it

I wanna kill the
Stereotypes

I wanna do it
Again, in a better way

I may get it wrong
It just depends on what you see
We only look at what we want to be
Real, so just understand:

Break the habits of the world
Even if you know you can't

Cause there's always tomorrow
To begin again;
A new dawn rises
Every morning

Break the cage,
Even if it's just your mind

Make it happen in time

Be the real thing
In someone's fairy tale

I'm ready to change
The way you think

But I can't
And that's that
Just suck it up

Maybe one day someone else will be able to
But for now
Just move along

I especially love the part about autism: contrary to popular belief, most autistic are VERY intelligent, with a keen eye for details, despite their exxentricities. L from Death Note is a PERFECT example of this.

I wish I had autism
So I could prove that autism,
Does NOT mean "dumb".
And I could break the stereotypes.


Acutally I do have autism, Asperger autism to be perfectly correct. And as you might read, it does not mean someone is 'dumb' or something like that, if you don't count useless knowledge I refuse to acknowledge as 'important', like knowing the face of a man who has been dead for many years I never ever met, I'm more intelligent than on the average. In fact, some of the most amazing people were autistic people - Albert Einstein or, even though he's just fictional, Sherlock Holmes for example. It is not an illness; an illness is what hurts or limits you. The illness are other people, those who can't accept it if someone is different, those who are simply too dumb to understand real logic not because they couldn't but because they don't want to. Their thinking of different = inferior is simply disgusting.
If people were like me they'd be able to think like an adult since they were small and yet at the same times they could act like a 3-years old and laugh about it. War would never happen because seriously, I don't choose the nation I'm born in so that's no reason to be proud or ashamed or to die "for the love to my country". Also if all people were autistic they'd probably either keep their rooms extremely clean or would hardly clean at all.
Not like that would happen, not as long as NTs are in charge -.-

Oh and nice poem btw!

The last comma interrupts the flow and doesn't actually do anything to support the meaning, but that aside, I loved the piece. I think it's telling and potent. The repetition of "break the stereotypes" with the ending "sometimes, you can't break a stereotype" really hits the point home. Keep this up!

Cwolf0615 Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
No, I don't believe she was saying that stereotype was right , she was just saying she wanted to be another person to break the stereotype is all. If you view it the way you are, then shes also saying no boys can just be friends with girls, no men can be kind to women, and autistic people are stupid, which she obviously isn't..... A-Ah, sorry for butting in... i'm just bored... and can't keep my mouth shut. I'm such a dork, sorry again. :P
