If you want to judge me
I’ll judge you right back because
I do not fit into anyone else’s puzzle
I am my own piece
Only one who answers to my name
The only one who knows my story
Don’t try to be someone else
Because yes
I do wear construction boot and
My dads old sweaters and no
I don’t always wear makeup and
brush my hair
but that
is me.
Float my own boat
Carve out my own path
Dance and sing to my own music
Even when others are around
And my music
Is only playing in my head
When you judge me
Watch your back because
I don’t care but
Someone else may and
I’d hate to see you hurt over my
Stupid little differences
Just leave me be and focus on you
It’s for my own good?
I’ve heard that before
Here’s something for your own good
Were made to be you
There’s a reason that
You don’t look like her and
You don’t have her body
Not everyone has to be flawless
And perfect
Differences are perfection
Even though all the “hot chicks”
Are s****
You look fine too
And you
Have an advantage if you hear me out
You will be you and like they always say
The original really is better than the copy so
Lock up your body
Your mind
Your emotions
Do not let another negative thought
Crawl under your skin and
Burrow into your brain
Do not have your blood
Infected by negativity
Embrace the Martian in you
Because otherwise
You’ll just be
Another one of them
Another facebook addict
Who hates skinny jeans
But wears them anyway
Another girl who
Spends thirty minutes on makeup
Another fake
Little princess
Just another failure at individuality
Mistake at difference
Copy of another
Is not special
Admit it to yourself and
Be judged
Take a walk on the wild side and
Never ever
Turn back

This is one of the best poems out there! I LOVE IT. I totally agree with being individual and NOT fitting in with the crowd, because we are all different yet we strive to fit in! A lot of my poems are about individuality. This is inspiring. Please keep writing.
