His/Her Whole Life Was About..... - Poem by Michelle Guza

Her life was all about her beauty
Not that she was ever ugly
But there is so much more to be

Her life was lost in a book
Not that its not good
But she doesn’t feel noticed although she should

His life was all sports
Not that he wouldn’t succeed
But what kind of life is that to lead

Her life was all about fitting in
Not that she did not
But she just wanted to find her rightful spot

Her whole life was about taking what wasn’t hers
Not that she got close enough to touch
But she tried ever so much

His whole life was about gossip
Not that some of it wasn’t true
But it really hurt when it was about you

Her whole life was about him
Not that it should be any other way
But that is what she talked about all day

His whole life was about being with me
Not that he never tried to flatter
But it is some other guy I rather

Her whole life was about a lie
Not that anyone believed her
But she was all about pretending they we’re

Her life was all about being her
But no on would let her be
I know this because this one is about me! !
