Yes, It's Me

Author:

I am an amateur writer who writes poetry and short stories and I love to cook.

I Am Me

I used to try to fit in

but without being seen

it was a problem

that needed fixing

I used to be something I'm not

and it was very unhealthy

until I gazed in the mirror one day

my gaze seriously steady

I am not who you want me to be

I am not who I pretend to be

I am not any of the things you think

I am me.

~Tee

Final Thoughts

Have you ever felt like you were pretending to be someone you're not. I think it happens a lot when you're younger and you're trying to fit in. Or you're being peer pressured into acting a way you know you wouldn't.

I recommend just being you! Don't let someone dictate how you should and shouldn't be. You are you and that's perfectly okay!

Thank you so much for reading this and I hope you enjoyed it!

See you later darlings!

It is awesome when you can realize you are happy being yourself. Yes...be you.

Pretend for no one.

Thank you and you're right. It is difficult sometimes to be yourself, especially if you haven't for so long.
