Favorite Quote:
"Don't be afraid of death, be afraid of the unlived life."

"Why are you trying so hard to fit in, when you were born to stand out?"

They say I’m an angel,
I look in the mirror and see only haze.
They can’t believe I’m so nice,
I’m only thinking about that one time yesterday when things didn’t go too well.
They say I’m innocent,
I think they’re full of it.
Can no one see what I see?
Is there a side of me plain to only me?
Don’t know crowd I belong to.
Unsure of my place among all of these fools.
Is it possible to be two people at once?
Trying to live up to these standards is exhausting,
But I have no idea what hanging with those homies will cost me.

The author's comments:
I wrote this to covey the internal anguish every teenager feels at some point when contemplating who they ARE and who they SHOULD be. Thanks for reading.
