Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.

Leave me be

Just let me be myself for once

Why can't I just be who I am inside

Instead of what you want me to become?

 

You can be you

I'm fine with that

I didn't care in the first place

But leave me be

 

I want to be myself

I just need you to understand

That I'm not changing for anyone

If you won't accept me for me

 

Then just leave me be

"Someday everything will make perfect sense. So, for now, laugh at the confusion, smile through the tears, and keep reminding yourself that everything happens for a reason." - Art Thomas

This poem is so heartfelt and honest, I really love it. This is perfect for how most teens probably feel. Great work!
