To be yourself in a world filled with people who want to change you is the worlds greatest accomplishment.

We are strong
We are young
We are different
We don't except
Our selves within
It is hard
To find a place
But steady yourself
And keep a pace
Be yourself
And you will find
A group of people
That was left behind
This poem may not make sense
But at least I feel
I am making change
Some are fake
Some are real
They try to appeal
To how others feel
We should be
Girls and guys
Do this all the time
But our time will come
Way to soon
So except yourself
And be real

The author's comments:
I am sick of people being so fake so they can "fit in" yet they aren't really excepted. I hope after people read this that they will understand how important being real is. If you don't understand what I mean by fake then look at one of the popular people who don't really fit in with the other popular people. So someone who acts differently around other people than they would normally act.
