All I Want Is...

January 16, 2009
By Kayla Brachbill, Shelbyville, IL

All I want is...
to be "popular".
to be "pretty".
to be "skinny".
All I want is to fit in.

All I want is...
for people to like me.
for guys to want me.
for people to talk about me.
All I want is to fit in.

All I want is...
the cool clothes.
the hot boys.
the "cool" friends.
All I want is to fit in.

But...
the fact of the matter is...
that...

All I need is...
people who love me.
true friends.
to be beautiful on the inside.
All I really need is to be ME.

You said it, girl!!

At the beginning of the poem I thought it shallow but the ending really clinches the message and earns you my 5 stars' worth!
