Facing rejection, being a subject of hate, disgust to others, others who are common, who love to label themselves as “normal”. But those normal people out there forgot that I’m as real and human as they are too.

Having discovered my true identity, I am on a journey to pursue with completing myself, so that I may seem common, and may seamlessly fit in. I’m tired of the lime-light, the staring and the gossips. I am who I am. I have a little heart, which beats just like yours. It feels all emotions that any common person would feel too: happy, sad, hurt, content, angry, you name it… Then why do you look at me as if I’m some sort of an alien?

But because of society’s rejection due to the blind faith and ignorance of others, I’m a slave to my birth defect. I cannot legally be bound to my love.
