Favorite Quote:
Be who you are, and say what you feel, because those who mind, don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
~Dr. Suess

Climbing, climbing, climbing

Trying to get to the top

Never stopping for anything, even when they get there

They knock you down

Not bothering to look where you fell

To help you get up

Walking past you, they put on their masks

Hiding the true definition of what they are

Forgetting to take the masks off, even when in good company

To them, the outer shell is all that matters

Not the good that they have locked within them

The potential that they all have, to be the better version of themselves

Attacking those who dare cross their path
Shunning the weak and unimportant
It all comes naturally to them

At times it seems as though they have no compassion
No love, no feelings
Not even for those who are chosen

They don’t see you for whom and what you are
Only what you look like in their eyes

Climbing, climbing, climbing
They never can satisfy their want to get to the top
Not even when they reach it

Always wanting to get higher
Nothing can stand in their way
They are the popular

This piece was inspired by the people at my school who don't know who and what they are. They don't realize how they act towards others, and how other perceive them.
