I have a special secret
Whenever I’m online
I do not share with strangers
The things that are just mine
My email and my home address
My phone, my age, my name.
These facts are just for me to know
On websites or on games.
Instead I use a nonsense name
As my identity
If strangers ask me for my name
I say “It’s Cyber me!
So when I want to surf the net,
For places that are cool,
I stay and just have fun,
I always keep the rules.
Wanting to be free,
Wanting to be me.
Trying to make people see,
And accept the real me.
Some people think my voice is too loud,
And that my mannerisms strike them as being odd.
This perception of me by others keeps me feeling blue,
But there are plenty of struggles I must get through.
I am determined to show my critics my true personality,
Hoping that people move away from their narrow-minded mentalities.
I want to make new friends and create a new start,
I like to develop new relationships with an open heart.
I hope to be accepted for the person that I am.
