poem

I wrote this poem and performed it in our school production. What do you think? I know it's kinda long, sorry.

 

I stand here to tell you that you should just be you,

Now, this may sound clique but I hope my words don't ricochet.

You should take this into account and be who you want to be.

Don't worry about opinions, don't worry about hate, just account for your dominions.

I think it's time to stop pretending, wouldn't you agree?

Now you may ask, how can I be anything other than me?

Well, some people have built walls to keep people out, built to hide the truth.

They keep putting it off, hiding all proof that they are anything other than what they want you to see.

When should this wall come down, well they say there is no time like the present,

And frankly, this quote is relevant to everyone in this room.

There is something you're putting off, don't just sit there and scoff because no one is perfect,

If everyone was perfect, people wouldn't have built walls to pretend that they were.

I am here to tell you to be who you prefer, be the person that you are scared to be,

Because between you and me.

Perfection is in the eyes of the beholder, there is no such thing as perfect because our opinions on perfection vary.

I know for some people this is scary to know that they aren't always right.

Hiding the truth hurts so save yourself some exerts,

And understand it is easier to be open than to be frozen in your distorted thoughts.

Come up with your breakthrough, and break the wall and just be you.

Particularly this line - "Hiding the truth hurts so save yourself some exerts,"
