not caring,

Miseducated

It’s nothing like they said it’ll be,
I’m classified by my color
in a land that was stolen
and passed as the free.

It’s nothing like they said it’ll be,
I’m stereotyped by my gender
and the size of my feet
always thought love never costed a thing.

It’s nothing like they said it’ll be,
I was taught to love and care for all
so in this world that notion makes me soft
because humans prefer subtracted feelings.

It’s nothing like they said it’ll be,
I’m a miseducated alien
from the planet Mars
and now these human ways are beginning to rub off.
