Everything they want me to be,
Flawless skin and glistening eyes,
Cherry lips and tumbling hair,
Thin to the point of disorder.

Everything they want me to be,
Perfect grades and glowing reports,
Neatly done homework and
methodically written essays,
Driven to the point of insanity.

Everything they want me to be,
Graceful smiles and effortless laughter,
Clever conversation and gentle sarcasm,
Social to the point of compulsive.

‎"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

I made a kind of similar poem to this last day and it's still pending for approval. I hate it when people pressure me. I just hate it.

Good poem :)
