About the Poem

This poem is what I have learned through many years of not having friends and believing it was due to the way I looked. I have learned that looks are not everything in life.

this poem really did say something to me and im pleased i've come across it i would also like to say to all poets out there don't limit yourself to rhyming because this can damage creativity and spoil brilliance take a leap of faith and don't limit your work because some of the most beautiful poems ever written didn't rhyme and they are inspirational, moving, amazing pieces and i would love to more young teens like myself (im 14) writing how they feel and expressing themselves in s healthy way thankyou Emily

Life's Choices

Life is full of choices
Make sure you pick the right one
Don't listen to the voices
Hear only yours and you have won

Many people will tell you
You need to change your looks
Don't take to heart their view
Fabulous bods are found only in books

There is only one voice
That you should listen to
It will help make the right choice
That is perfect just for you

Your looks are your own
Someone will always love you
You will never be alone
Look in the mirror and you'll see who

I loved this poem. Even though alot of people who know me may not believe that i can relate to this i surely can. Even though people don't make fun of me for my looks, in fact they praise my looks, i still feel like i'm not good enough in everyone's eyes. This poem helped me realize that my looks should be acceptable only in my eye's, that's the only oppinion that matters. Great poem!
Ingrid

This is a terrifik poem! I don't feel this way, but I do not agree with how society pressures young people to look certain ways: what ever happened to originality? Are they trying to make us into clones?
Bridget
