I found inspiration for this poem watching people from the sidelines of the school hallway.
Do People Understand Me?
Do I need to be something else?
Or will people like the real me?
Everybody feels the need to act,
Outside of their comfort zones,
Projecting an ideal image people
Everybody feels the need to fake.
Under influence, maybe.
Not my problem. I just wonder,
Do they truly feel good about themselves?
Everybody feels the need to lie.
Sure, to feel better, cooler. No problem. But
The lies need to be controlled.
Are you the real you?
Now – this very second?
Don't lie. Don't fake. Don't act.
Me is me.
