Everyone has some type of life.
Whether it be good, bad, happy, or sad, it is still a life.
Every life has its struggles and some have more than others.
Some people take those who struggle more with life and label them as "messed up" or the more popular term "emo."

We shouldn't label people, instead we should take them under our wing and help them through their struggles.
Even if it is difficult, we should help the labeled.
They don't like being forsaken every where they go.

Could you imagine a world with no labels?
A world where everyone is equal and everyone can get along and coexist without worrying about what other people think?
Could that forsake the struggles of life?
I don't think so.
Could it possibly make is easier?
Yeah it probably could.

But until that time, we the labeled must struggle through it all and imagine what it would be like to live in the world without labels

I wrote this when I was sitting at an elementary school in my home town. I was upset one night and I started thinking so I typed this up on my phone. When I got home I changed it a little and now this is it.

"Whether it be good, bad, happy, or sad, it is still a life" is my favorite line of this poem because it's very deep and true.
