Faking my smile

Hiding the pain,

Want to get away

from these peope proud and vain.

 

Everyone around

With all their cliche ways

Girls giggling, gossipping, flirting

and wasting all their days.

 

This place isn't for me

with all these plastic faces.

Back stabbers and fake friends,

I'm sick of all their cases!

 

  BUT AM I ANY DIFFERENT?

 

I stare into the mirror,

who is this I see?!

This person looking like a fake doll

Definitely cannot be me!

 

Mini skirt, Paired with heels I can't walk in

My face full of make-up

Everything about me looks made up...

 

I'd rather sit at home and read,

but then I won't be considered "cool",

So I put on the mask like everyday

And act like rest of the fools.


The author's comments:

This is entirely what I've felt through my years of high school. I'm sure all of us, at some point, felt the need to fit in, to be one of the crowd, to belong. What I didn't realize at that moment was that fitting in is stupid. At that stage of my life, there was no one to remind me how absurd it is to forget your uniqueness and do what everyone else is doing. Through this poem, I just want to remind everyone who has no one to remind them "You are beautiful and you are unique. Don't let anything or anyone force that away" :)
