“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...”
― Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You'll Go!


The box can be so
Hard. It’s like tip-toeing
Down a hall of









mirrors

You’re trying so hard to be normal, but with
All of your differences amplified and with
No choice but to face them, achieving that goal





can

Become a heart-wrenching disaster that
Shatters you from the inside out. You’re in the
Middle of a tug-o-war and it’s impossible to






be

What everyone else wants. And as you
Try and try to be this
Image of perfection you’re








so

Focused that you lose yourself. You slap a
Smile on your face, even convince yourself your
Happy, because that’s what they say they want, but everyone’s



deceiving.

It takes a few words to say "I love you" but it takes a lifetime to show it

This is beautifly written, true and relatable. The "hidden" :P message within the writing is quite true. If only everyone could be blind, then no one would be judge by only skin deep thoughts, but would be accepted for their unique characteristics that make them who they really are :D. Thank you AmazingGracie for sharing your talent, great job and keep writing
