i'm a girl with a past, struggling in the present and questioning my future but no matter what i will stay myself.

you change.
you conform.
you alter yourself.
just to please the masses to get a new hand dealt.
you go from bubbly to bland in a matter of days
your smile goes from big to subtle and grey.
you claI'm the real you had died so long ago
but as far as I'm concerned its all been just a show.
stating irreverent behavior isn't what you do.
but look at you now with your curtsies and how-do-you-do's.
so petty and fake makes me shutter at the thought.
your just societies puppet
knock that dumb stuff off.

The author's comments:
i got inspired to right this poem by the amount of people that change who they are just to fit in with the crowd and how people change into something worse than they were before. just know it is okay to change just don't change for the wrong reason or into something that isn't cool by any standard.
