You were born an origanal why die a copy?The secret to success is the consistency to pursue.To the world you may be one person,but to one person you may be the world.To receive the right answer,you must ask the right question.Don't worry be happy! :)


When I look into the mirror,
The reflection I see is you.
I no longer recognize myself,
I wish that wasn't true.
Everyday I'm pretending,
I'm disguised with lies.
You are my new identity,
You're the soul behind my eyes.
The only thing I can hear,
Is your voice inside my head.
Where have I gone,
The real me seems dead.
I don't remember who I was,
You have been me for so long.
You made my like seem right,
When everything appeared wrong.
I am captive in your love,
In your chains I am bound.
I'm searching for myself.
The true me needs to be found.


The author's comments:
I hope people will learn to always be true to themself and not to conform to fit someone else's mold because who they are is perfect and doesn't need to be altered to make someone happy. Remember, you were born an original so why die a copy?

The truth is that at some point, everyone's going to hurt you. You just have to decide who's worth the pain.

Some say having something to lose is what makes you vulnerable. I believe that having something to lose only makes you stronger.

Aw, this is so beautiful.

I'm pretty ashamed to say that so much of this sounds so familiar to me and is 100% relatable.

I agree you shouldn't have to change who you are for the person that you love.

This is a great! I think it expresses the feelings of many teen girls today. The quest to be original but still blend in is a hard path, but an important one.

Love this, the rhyming is great and the emotions are so true! By the way, I love your quote! "Remember, you were born an original so why die a copy!" Beautiful.
