Its Just A Number....So Why Care?...Dont...

Like chalk on a sidewalk we stand out for a moment
Then we are washed away by the rain

Fake.

Love.

Hurt.

Pain.

Everything you try to be to fit in with that crowd you wanna be in
But then the truth comes out and everyone knows you're a fake

Lies.

Ages.

Sadness.

Scared.


The one you want and need to be with cause you love and feel different
But the age stops everyone when its just a number,But I wanna be you forever

    This is a very interesting write, and I am sure we all felt like the outcast at some point in our lives, and once you love yourself so will everyone else. Love the creative structure to this Lexi, good one you!

    just be your self. time will come when months will feel like weeks. and years will pass like months. the older you get the faster time moves. enjoy your youth you have a very short time left. then after that the work begins. john
