My Life - Poem by lil island Gal

Life isn't about keeping score.
It's not about how many friends you have Or
how accepted you are.
Not about if you have plans this weekend or
if you're alone.

It isn't about who you're dating, who you used to date,
how many people you've dated,
or if you haven't been with anyone at all.

It isn't about who your family is or
how much money they have,
Or what kind of car you drive.

It's not about how beautiful or ugly you are.
Or what clothes you wear, what shoes you have,
Or what kind of music you listen to.

It's not about if your hair is blonde, red, black, or brown,
Or if your skin is too light or too dark.
Not about what grades you get how smart you are,
how smart everybody else thinks you are, or how smart
standardized tests say you are.

It's not about what clubs you're in or how good
you are at 'your' sport.
It's not about representing your whole being on a piece of
paper and seeing who will 'accept the written you.'

Life just isn't.

    This is heartfelt and the theme is so finely woven in your lines.Like fresh water. I agree with you but we also live for some cherished days though they mean nothing to us but for others they are so much more. In the end there is a blank wall again. I would prefer a date on mocha today.10 (Report) Reply

    It would have been most apt
    A line in addition, you would have written
    As to what life is after all
    All of us have the same thought about life...
    Its not 'this and 'that' then what? ?

    Nicely written. Thanks...
