There's this thing at my school called "Best of The Best". The thing bothers me, its where the 8th grade class like votes for people who have the 'best smile' or is 'most likely to succeed' and stuff. So, these are my... basic thought about the thing.

that make sense

in a middle or high

school life.

But do they really matter? 

Really make sense?

 

Only people

who are known

popular

loved

will get chosen.

Those

'nobodys'

won't get picked

Only the populars.

 

Is this

what its come to?

Trying so hard

to be popular

known,

heard.

Our lives

have become 

about this -

being famous.

 

Who would've known

that

throughout all this

to get

Best Smile

Nicest Person,

you have to be someone you're not.

 

It's all been

a popularity 

contest, 

now hasn't it?
