Poem About Being Yourself

I hate when people judge me by the way I look, because life is still hard for me each and every day. That's why I rather laugh now and cry later.

Thank you for this very inspiring poem you wrote. I feel the same way too, and sometimes I feel like I don't deserve to be somebody but trash. I look down at myself every day. But reading...

I'm No Different From You

People just look at me,
Look enough to stare,
Not noticing the inside of me.
They just look at the clothes I wear.
They don't know how I feel.
They think I'm always glad,
But there's something they don't know.
I'm the one who's feeling sad.
They think I always win,
But really I always lose.
They think my life is so great,
But they couldn't stay one day in my shoes.
You may think I'm strong.
You may think I'm tough,
But you have no idea my life is so rough.
Every time I'm in my room
You'll see water go down my eyes.
You'll ask me what's wrong.
I'll put on a fake disguise.
People say that I am too good to get hurt,
But I'm just like everyone else.
I wish that could work.
Everybody says I look too good
And I'm just a tease,
But I cry my eyes out then put on a cheese.
When love came into my life,
Surprisingly that was something I feared.
I never thought I'd be feeling like this in all my 16 years.
Yes, I've been in love.
Yes, I got hurt.
You would have thought all she does is fight and flirt,
But you are wrong about everything.
I was wrong about it too.
Now I see love's agony
And what it can do.
That's why I'm here,
To throw away this stress and strife,
To start all over,
Maybe a new life,
But people over here
Are the same as over there.
They just look at your appearance
And the style of your hair,
Never to look at the inside of me,
Never to care.
I was brought into this world,
Realizing life's not fair,
So if you really think...
I look too good,
I dress too nice,
I never get hurt,
I'll never stay by a guy's side,
And the word love
I can't describe.
You're wrong about that too.
I'm just like everyone else around me...I'm just like you.

Thank you for this very inspiring poem you wrote. I feel the same way too, and sometimes I feel like I don't deserve to be somebody but trash. I look down at myself every day. But reading your story, it gives me hope and to love myself more than any man could give. God bless you and I'm looking forward for more inspiring poems of yours.
