Thoughts Of A Teenage Mind - Poem by Nishita Gupta
So what if I'm not as you expected!
I'm different, I'm not like you.
Is this a reason for me to be neglected?
I do my own thing; to me this world is new.
My thoughts and opinions are not to your liking,
But I love how I am.
I know you find my personality shocking,
But I'm only human.
I don't want to conform;
I like to stand out
On this I stand stern,
To be an individual! I shout,
But you try to tie me down,
Clip my wings, so I cannot fly.
If I conform, all you'll see is my frown.
I feel smothered, like I will die.
So what if I'm different!
Love me for who I am!
You do know that 'm God sent,
But I feel as though my life is sham.
I'm not going to change to please you!
You say I rebel,
But is this really true?
Sometimes my life feels like a living Hell!
Whatever my crime,
I refuse to change.
I would much rather serve my time,
I simply refuse to listen to a word you say!
You just have to deal
Take me as I am, or leave me alone.
I have the time to kill
As you sit there deciding on how to make me your clone,
But I am what I am,
And I'm comfortable with being me,
I hate living this shame!
Loving myself, now that's the true key.
