Snellville Student's Poem About Importance of Being Yourself

Hailey Prainito, a Snellville teenager, wrote the following poem, titled 'I Am Me' for Snellville Middle School's Poetry Palooza. I thought it was excellent and asked if I could share this with all of you.

I poke myself in the eye
because society says eyeliner is beautiful
I burn acid on my face
because society says pimples are unattractive
I starve myself
because society says 50 pounds is the new 100
I spend hours on my hair
because society says fake is good
I blend in
because society says individuality is a joke
but now, now I refuse to poke
I refuse to burn
I refuse to starve
I refuse to waste time
and I refuse to blend in
because I am ME
something no one else can be
I am ME
so set me free
i cried
