Pluto

First of all, I was named after the God of Hell… That wasn’t nice… But, it’s just a name… I don’t care… you don’t pick your own name… Why should others look at me differently for it?… I am not judging others by their name… And I wouldn’t have any troubles… Why should my brother feel so pleased with himself when he’s named after the most famous eater of kids… But as I said, I don’t judge others for their name… It doesn’t make any sense… Our names don’t define us… Everyone should be judged by their own actions and personality, that’s what I say… But it didn’t stop there, did it?… For some reason they just try to make me a laughing stock… Is it because I am the smallest?… Is it because I am the slowest?… Why do they hate me?… I HAVE A HEART… Yes, I know you were surprised when you found that out… You always assumed I am so cold… so distant… But I am actually really nice… I wasn’t asked to be born so far away… I wasn’t asked to be born at all… But… here I am… So why don’t I make the best of it… Luckily, I have at least one friend… Life would be lonely otherwise… He’s even smaller than me!… I didn’t think something like that was possible… We talk every day… Sometimes, it is me who comes closer… Sometimes it is him… And again, some people think it is wrong!… They have the audacity to tell me I should play harder to get! That I should let him come… That I shouldn’t make any effort… Well… I think they are wrong… They are so biased against me!… They took everything that is wrong with me… They don’t care that I am so lonely on my path… They are saying I should not visit my brothers and sisters!… That I should go by my own path in circles… Never visit others… Well… I said no!… I will live my life as I want it… I am not going to live by their definitions… No no, that is not a life for me… They always have full mouth of uniqueness… How people should be unique… Something special… And when I do this I am suddenly called such hateful names!… They call me a dwarf!… It’s not my fault I didn’t grow any more!… They ostracise me for being myself… They pick me separately from my siblings… Like I am some kind of freak… Some monster… Well… I tell you this… I AM NOT A MONSTER… I am sorry I am not the thing you want me to be… I am sorry I don’t fulfil your needs… But I can’t do anything about it… It didn’t matter in the past, why should it matter now?… Don’t you dare hide behind your books and science!… You are bullies!… But it won’t break my spirit… I am Pluto and I am the one who matters… Not your thoughts or ideas about the universe… You should be ashamed… Think what you are doing… I pray that you’ll see the light… I will be here… Waiting for that day… Waiting for an apology… For remorse… To give you absolution… To be the bigger man… Now go… I am done with you… Done… Until you are ready to admit your mistakes…
