I wanted to be like other people

For the wrong reasons

Because I thought their lives were easy

I would watch them while they were joking around

I was the only one

Not making a sound

One day I tried being like them

And it wasn’t worth it

I saw my life break into pieces

When being myself was all I needed

Add yours

  1. Aww. This is sad. Oftentimes, we hate ourselves too much that we wish we were somebody else, little did we know, we were meant to be ourselves and not change a thing.
