As I sit here
As I sit here…
I see everyone that passes by
some smile on their way,
others you notice are thinking of long lost memories that alight in their eyes.
Some are chatting, uncontrollably laughing,
But I can still see the sadness in their eyes
And it makes me wonder… why are they sad?
For not having a personality strong enough to help them discern a friend from foe?
From acting the way “society” demands?
For not being original, but forced to fit the typical status quo?
From laughing, when you know they want to cry?
To them I say… Why do you try so hard to fit in?
Being unique adds more value to life, than going with the flow.
Why will you dim your light to let others glow??
Acceptance? False friendship? Feeling of belonging?
Everyone around you that accepts you for who you are,
including the crazy and scary parts, is a real friend
and the idea of belonging gets stronger and unbreakable
once you are comfortable with yourself.
After that, everything falls into place, everything has meaning.
You will never smile if you don’t feel like it,
you won’t need to hide because now you know…
you rule your life and every decision you make
reflects your personality and not what others think you should be.
Take that step… cut all the ties..
