Being true

Being you

Is truer than true.

It takes guts, it

Takes courage

To stand out

Of the crowd.

As people we grow,

As people we change

Either get stronger

Or weaker. We lose friends

And we gain others.

We argue and we make up.

We go through trials

To show who we are

And where we may stand

In this world.

We lose a passion for something

So we find another.

We stress about school

We stress about family.

But we don’t let that get

In the way of what we want,

Do we?

As people we grow,

As people we change

Either get stronger

Or weaker.

I decided to grow as a person

Throughout my seventeen

Years of life

Life is a crazy but magical thing

You make what you want of it.

People bring you down

But then there’s the ones

That bring you up.

I’ve always been the one

To bring people back up

When they’ve fallen.

But you can’t expect that

From everyone.
