i always lived by the saying “live for the moment”
otherwise on the inside i die off being dormant
No wonder people say I need a real parent
although i just wanna be special and vibrant
like a beautiful women at a pageant
who’s valiant, not only in an image but also a talent
because im not just for looks like a pretty pendent
unique in a way, where im not up for judgment
i listen and acknowledge others criticism patient
im kind and smile back very pleasant
weather its helpful or just mean or decent
because i know to me its just a figment
why should i give them the upper placement
to judge me and comment me from a distant
when the real truth and knowledge of me is absent
and there opinions of me is non important
I will not let it curve a tangent path into my life’s pavement
one day I will not just be looked upon as a servant
because I didn’t become part of the movement

i like the concept of this poem and how you relate yourself to an ideal pageant girl, one who is both beautiful on the inside and out. It was very well written. i do think it would be cool if you tried to rhyme less, because i feel like it holds you back in some places just due to limited word choices, but other than that it was very awesome!

This almost sounds like it could be a rap which is actually pretty cool :)
