Being yourself in high school is not common. Everyone needs a wake up call occasionally; like in “Fast Girls” by Daii Angel. Every girl should read this poem, and take its advice. Learn not to rush time. Anyone can relate and say they rush in growing up, and doing what everyone else does because they feel like time is running out.

“Who are you?” She asks. Too many people loose themselves and forget who they are as they grow up. They change too quickly, and stop caring about what used to matter; school. At this age only a few care about school and grades. It’s more important to fit in with everyone else your age.

This poem spoke to me. The best message in seventeen lines. Slow down.
