This poem is just about my life experiences as growing up as a teenager and how to deal with all of the pressures in life! enjoy! this is one of my favorite poems!

Why do people change?
What is the problem with being yourself?
Are you scared of ruining your image?
Is that more important?
Why do people change?
Can’t they just be themselves?
Why do they go away?
Do they think they’re cool because they wear the same jeans?
Why do people change?
Can’t the world just stay the same?
Who cares if you hair isn’t straight?
Who cares if your mouth isn't always open?
Why do people change?
Why do people hide under a mask?
Are they afraid they won't be accepted anymore?
Who do people shun others who are unlike?
Why do people change?
Is the change for the good of the world?
Or is it for the need to feel wanted?
Why do people feel they aren't good enough?
Are you?
Will you change?

Great questions.I've often wondered the same things myself.I think it's because they want so much to fit in, but in the end they are only hurting the ones who really care about them.Great job again.
