As she walked down the hall everyone stared at her.
Some laughed.
She didn’t know what she had done wrong
to have them make fun of her.
All she had ever done was mind her own business.
She has been kind, thoughtful, and caring to all of them
and all she gets in return is mocking and teasing.
It doesn’t seem fair.
Although life is never fair.
The laughter seemed to get louder and louder,
the stares more intense as she made her way down the hallway.
All she had ever wanted was to be accepted.
To be loved for who she was.
Tired of living in the past and making others happy.
Tired of trying to please everyone…
tired of being something she’s not just so people would like her.
People call her name mockingly.
She just ignores them.
But then at that moment, it was then she realized that it shouldn’t
matter what they think of her.
She shouldn’t pretend to be something she’s not just to fit in.
All she needs to do is be her self,
be someone who is different and unique.
That is all she can ever be.
That is all anyone can ever be.
