Be You…

By Marissa-Lena Nares, 15, California


Being you is a hard thing to do.
In this world people
Will try to bring you down.
They will try to turn you
Into someone you’re not.
They don’t like different,
Even though they say they do.
People will judge you,
No matter what you do,
Say, think, believe. But,
You can’t let them get to you.
Believe in yourself.
Believe you can do it.
Aim towards the sky, and
Smile while you do it.
Just be you, even
If it’s the hardest thing to do.
