Favorite Quote:
Replace old memories with new ones.

The crowd moves together,
decisions aren’t made on their own.
It seems like their heads are as light as a feather.
Their like a bunch of clones.
But here I stand,
on my own, different from the crowd.
Unlike the crowd I let my mind expand,
I walk in the other direction different and proud.
Standing tall,
and grinning wide.
I laugh as I watch their individualism fall.
Here I stand without a guide.
Laughing so hard,
while they all neglect to notice that they’re scarred.

The author's comments:
Sometimes people judge me for the way I dress, act, look, talk, and think. Yet I simply laugh at the fact they have no individualism. Fashion and "style" are two different things. Fashion is a popular way of dressing or living. Style is having your own way of doing things whether it be writing, dressing, singing, music, dancing, the list goes on and on. But more every day I see individualism falling. I am one of the few people in my school that dresses the way I want to. I follow no influences of other people. I am part of the dying individuals.
