And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes.”


She walked around with a smile from ear to ear

She was well known around here

She caught every guy's eye

She never seemed to be shy

She was loud and outgoing

She did bad things without anyone knowing

She could even sing

She..this girl had everything

But wait...have I been fooled?

She's not the same girl that she is in school

She goes home and cries every night

She lives her life in fright

She doesn't know anything about self worth

She was told she would never amount to anything ever since birth

From what others see, she has the perfect life

But really all she has is strife

I would look at her everyday and say "Why can't I be that way?"

She had the cutest clothes, great shoes..she lived in wealth

But none of that matters when you look in the mirror & hate yourself

She had everyone around her telling her that she was the best

But that was never installed in her so she didn't believe the rest

So..she'll probably continue to walk around like she's "all that"

Hmph..you can't judge a book by it's cover and that's a fact


The author's comments:
I wrote this poem because in life we often envy others who we think have the "perfect" life, but what we fail to realize is that no one has a perfect life. We all have struggles and insecurities..it's just that some of us may cover them up better than others.
