Read Between The Lines - Poem by Deirdre Devina

Read between the lines
And think about what’s really there
People never show what they think
At no time, not anywhere
They trust on first impressions
And they never look through
They think you’re just like everybody
They think that they know you
But when you just aren’t the same
And you do as you feel
People won’t except that
They want to keep it real
There is no space for changes
There is no space for you
Just be like everybody else
That’s what they want you to do

    I like the idea behind this poem. Is 'except' supposed to be 'accept'?
    Also, the last line sticks a bit - 'you to do'.
    How about: 'Just like they want you to' -chuck
