"Without suffering, there could be no compassion."

Being pressured by your peers around you,

can lead to your own self-destruction.

Imagine how much crap they put you through,

being you becoems a demolition.


Change can happen in your academics.

You don't realize how someone impacts you.

They are slowly altering your ethics,

your dreams suddenly aren't worth to pursue.


Your future becomes ore irrelevant,

doing drugs just to be as cool as them.

But to them you're just their little peasant,

you'll see you'll never wear the diadem.


Be you for you, and put your mind at ease,

'cause society is too hard to please.

The author's comments:

Recently in class we were assigned to write a literature piece on a specific reason why someone would struggle to maintaint their identity. Immediately, I thought about peer pressure. I chose peer pressure because nowadays, it is the reason why teens or people of adolesence try new things that would normally be ot of their characteristics. This piece was personal for me because I was someone who changed a lot due to peer pressure and I know how it can negatively impact or alter you and your life.
