"To be nobody but
yourself in a world
which is doing its best day and night to make you like
everybody else means to fight the hardest battle
which any human being can fight and never stop fighting."
-E.E. Cummings

Who cares about them?
With their plastic smiles and annoying trends
They mean nothing to you
Because happiness is the only truth.

Honesty with oneself is what makes life worth it
Cuz fake emotions and meaningless laughs
Will give you not half
The joy of a heart fully lit.

So just let them be
They won't really matter in the end
Make your own happiness
Don't let it on others depend.

People come and go,
Choose wisely who you spend your time with
Friends are not for show
Rather, a beloved prize, a gift.

Pretenders can only do harm
Not just to themselves, but to others
But true friends accept, no, embrace who you are
And make living a passionate wonder.

The author's comments:
I wrote this after falling for someone who I thought was into me. He still had feelings for someone else who I believe still had feelings for him too. I wrote this because, even though I was hurt, I knew that they would be the ones hurting in the end if they kept lying to themselves.
