"Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding." -Khalil Gibran

I keep my chin held up high
Despite people giving me the evil eye
I walk past a teasing crowd
Saying how weird I am out loud
Without a single hint of despair
I walk by without a single care
I was criticized about how I dress
But I know I am the only person I want to impress

I am confident
I am strong
I do not care where I belong
No one can tell me who I should be
Because I can only be me

I really like this message. I really like the lines I walk through a crowd while they call me weird. I can relate to this poem cause at times I have low.confidenence. But I really like this. Be you and only you. Suggestion: maybe add a personal experience small one
