Treat Me Different

In Treat Me Different, Marshall (teen) is struggling to come to terms with his identity and he tries to open up to his father about his inner conflict.

MARSHALL: Why can’t I just talk to you? You’re my father, ain’t ya?

JIM: Don’t you start getting wise with me.

MARSHALL: But you are! When you ever gonna be there for me the way I need you to be there for me? I can never talk to you cause you never really listen to what it is I’m trying to say. I’m trapped! I can’t talk to Mama cause she hates my guts, I got no friends cause they all treat me different and I don’t want to be different, I just want to fit in and be like everybody else and I don’t know how cause I can’t connect with anyone the way I know myself to be and I refuse to connect with myself because I don’t like who I am and I don’t wanna be who I am and I have no where to go!
