Set Aside

We all live in this world

We fight to be noticed

Though, we all live in a mold.

 

Some cannot fight against those who are stronger,

So we let them pull us under.

 

We want to be set aside for once

To listen to our own thoughts

To sing our own songs.

 

Why is it so hard to love ourselves?

We slay our spirits and our voice.

 

Why is it hard to prove yourself.

We need to stay strong because it's Our Choice. 

This poem is about:

Our world

SETATRO thank you! And no sadly I didn't draw the artwork myself but thank you very much, I'll let the person who did know that others appreciate it as much. :)
