Why Do You Even Try?

Why Do You Even Try?

A Poem by Simply Whitney

Why do we try so hard to be different?

To set ourselves a part from everyone else?

No one can truly understand why they do this

unless they know who they are themself.


If you try too hard,

You then become fake.

You lose yourself and others around you.


Do you want to stand out?

Do you want to be different?

Then be yourself.


No one can change you.

No one can break you.

No one can even move you

unless you let them.

Unless you let them get to you.


If you haven't noticed,

no one is your enemy.

Your biggest enemy is yourself.
