Why Can’t We?

October 4, 2007
By Natalie Moursalian, New City, NY

Why can’t we just be ourselves?
Always trying to be like the people next to us.
Trying to talk, walk, and dress like them.

Why can’t we all just get along?
Look out and take care
For one another.

Why must we care about what others think?
What you are wearing now,
It’s not going to matter in ten years.

Why do others judge us on how we talk, walk, and dress?
I don’t know,
Do you?
