The greatest truth in life is that those you love, cherish or simply trust the most are irrevocably destined to break you the most.


Why be anyone but you?
It’s like they say:
those who stay by your side
matter but don’t mind—
and those that tease you
mind but don’t matter.
So three cheers for individuality,
and having your own personality.

Here’s to you…

All the
nerds—
kooks—
down-on-your-luck,
never-be-in-the-spotlight
ones.

All the
geeks—
nobody’s—
never-get-a-date,
wear-a-pocket-protector
ones.

All the
populars—
Spoiled—
future-prom-queens-and-kings,
daddy’s-little-angel,
ones.

All the
jocks—
studs—
coach’s-favorite-team-star,
captain-of-the-varsity-team
ones.

All the
passionates—
creatives—
hiding-your-true-talent,
writers-and-artists-in-hiding
ones.

All the
brains—
know-it-alls—
read-the-dictionary,
do-math-for-fun
ones.

Here’s to everyone.
all of those who do—
and don’t—
fit in.
Those who know their place,
and those who are still finding out.
Those who know it all or are in the dark.
Here’s to all the cliques,
of every way and kind
that make up every place
across our collaged nation.

Here’s to you.

The author's comments:
I salute any of you who fall into some stereotypical group or cliche and still being you. I am your cliche "dark depressed writer chic" and proud. There are literally dozens of different cliques, groups or otherwise stereotypes in every community of the world. It doesn't take much to be in one--but it does take a lot to be proud to be you as one. So here's to all of you that can.
