Everyone's crazy. You know why? We all want to be normal. Well, we cant define normal, and, the people you can point at and say, well isn't he/she normal are rare. Doesnt that kind of defeat the pupose of normal? -My Friend

"I would like to be remembered as a woman who did the best she could with the talent she had."

It's a great concept. A lot of people I bet, especially on this website, can relate to it! It's short and sweet, very easy to read but it leaves you with so much more than just a few lines of a poem. You pack a lot of emotion into only 8 lines, which is very nice! Good job!

‎"I’m learning how to drown out the constant noise that is such an inseparable part of my life. I don’t have to prove anything to anyone. I only have to follow my heart and concentrate on what I want to say to the world: I run my world." - Beyoncé

Maybe, movements is better than dances in the 4th line. But it's just me, so...

This poem is good - short and easy to read... Keep it up :)

Short and sweet!  It's a nice poem, saying how kids aren't supposed to have fun.

I agree, so much meaning in so little lines!!! Its like God telling us to behave and stop being so selfish!!!
