Myself - Poem by amar qamar

Why can't I just be me?
Why should I care what people see
Voices say wear this, act like that
So what if I don't integrate,
and not part of the pack
I have my own style and look
The cover, isn't what's always in the book
Sense of myself is mine to seek
Don't think to back me into a corner
To categorise me, as if I'm weak
My method is my individuality
Don't try and judge my mentality
I don't need the fashions or trends to impress
It's not up to you how I behave or dress
Uniqueness is what makes us grand
Why be part of the herd, dull and bland
We are the ones people will remember
Better to glow among coal like ember
Just accept me, instead of condemn
That being said, now, how do I tell them...
