I used to think make up
Made people ugly.
Now I think I'm ugly without it.

I used to think people
Always loved me.
Now I think everyone hates me.

I used to think everybody
Was my best friend.
Now I think no one truly is.

I used to think
Boys were icky!
Now I wish I had one.

What happened to being
Happy?
I don't like the ending :iconblahplz:


NOOO. :iconomg--plz:


HELP.
Okay please comment and stuff! <3

This is awesome. A true look at how perception changes as we grow up.

This is actually so true, I see this happen way too often and I even think so. Honestly, all innocence has been stripped away because it has become a process in "growing up"

you would look wonderful 
with or without
there's always someone
that's a friend for you
betrayal happens
so does loyalty
you're still you
it's hidden inside

I've seen pics of you with and without makeup. You look great both ways.

The world hates us, the "freaks" as people say. We can't care about it. If we do, we're dead.

Friends vanish in the air. We can live without them.

We all want someone. Someone we can be happy with. And we look all our lives. And we fail.

And you want to know what happened to being happy? You've grown up.

Wow, I feel the same way! But I think this is a natural feeling. After all, everything has to change eventually in life, and that includes opinions about something

Unfortunately, life has a way of doing these things to people.
But happiness is still abundant, even after we've woken up the world's hate.

Happiness kinda gets screwed over by society...

Wow, this is so great.
It's really perfect, because it's so wonderfully relatable, but not in the typical way.
Very well done!

I identify with so many of your poems it's scary. 0.o Especially the make-up part is true for me, except I never really felt pretty. ^^;
