Why should I change to please people? They tell you to be yourself, and then they judge you for you. It's like standing with your clothes on. They like you when you're covered up, but when you show the real you, you're naked. They don't like it


Walking down the street
Staring down at my feet
Thinking about what's been done
Wishing people would leave me alone

Someone else

Locked up in the bedroom
Singing personal songs
Strumming the guitar strings
Wondering what had been done wrong

Someone else

Sitting on the sidelines of a football game
Watching the plays
Feeling alone and in pain
No one meets my gaze

Someone else

All these people have something in common
They're all lonely, looking for someone
For someone to stop and appreciate their true talent
For them to beckon, "Come home"

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

I love this! And please, know this. There is someone who knows and appreciates your true talent. Thank you for sharing this!
