Seventeen years of life experience and I'm still not qualified for the job, because everyone thinks I'm either too young or too dumb. Pressured by society to look thin and tan, but we can hardly face each other man to man.

I am a product of judgement and lies. 
  Memories are a part of me, They drift apart from me. So many thoughts, just like my old matchbox cars, Simpler times---remember pogo sticks and toy guns,
My eyes dart side to side looking for the welcoming smile, Was it not enough, You have put my entire life on trial, I know what I have done makes my outside rough,
I smile in hope they will stop staring. I smile in hope that they will see the beauty I see when I look in the mirror. I smile in hope to make someone's day.
When it comes to how people view themselves you all have a blind spot. When you look in the mirror you don't see the same things I do. You see mistakes & flaws. I see perfection & beauty in My making.
You judged me

Why do we have all of this? No one knows why. Why do we listen? No one knows why. Why should they tell us? No one knows why. Why do we do this? No one knows why. Why don't we stand up?
I am only one. I walk through the halls Looking for support From someone, From anyone. No one looks, No one listens, No one cares. The taunting and name calling continue
No matter what anyone says, you are beautiful. You can do whatever you set your mind to. You are strong. Don't let anyone tell you that you aren't good enough. You are going to be successful, despite the hard times.
