Today is the Tomorrow you were worrying about Yesterday. The journey of a lifetime begins with one single step. Negativity is the downfall of dreams. It's not the quantity of friends that matters it's the quality.


I'm glad I'm not a girl,
Who fusses on her hair.
I'm glad I'm not a girl,
Whose head is full of air.
I'm glad I'm not a girl,
Who strictly follows the trends
I'm glad I'm not a girl,
Who gossips about her friends.
I'm glad I'm not a girl,
Who won't take a stand.
I'm glad I'm not a girl,
Who has to have a tan.
I'm glad I'm not a girl,
Who paints on her face,
I'm glad I'm not a girl,
Whose intelligence is a disgrace.
I'm glad I'm not a girl,
Whose head is in the clouds.
I'm glad I'm not a girl,
Who's obnoxiously loud.
I'm glad I'm not a girl,
Who lives in the mirror.
I'm glad I'm not a girl,
Who refuses to face her fears.
I'm glad I'm not a girl,
Who never really tries.
I'm glad I'm not a girl,
Who can't hang with the guys.
I'm glad I'm not a girl,
Who won't play in the dirt.
I'm glad I'm not a girl,
Who's fears getting hurt.
I'm glad I'm not a girl,
Who's without words to speak.
I'm glad I'm not a girl,
Who's afraid to be unique!


The author's comments:
Well here's MY point of view...I believe we should all be individuals. We shouldn't talk, act, dress, or try to be like anyone else. I once heard..."You were born an origanl, why die a copy?" I try my hardest to live by that and believe others should also. I've never wanted to be a "cookie cutter" and I don't see why anyone else would...

you will never make it big if you dream small. youll never learn if your living in the past and youll never understand if you were to fast forward, just press play and live!

this is amazingly written, i totally agree with you. i can honestly relate, i just moved schools for the 4th time and i am tired of dealing with girls that have nothing better to do than talk about other people and stare at themselves in the mirror.
