"Life isnt about finding yourself, Its about creating yourself,"

People hate me
Why? I don’t know
All they do is look at me
And their opinions out they throw

Their judgments are so harsh
On just the way I look
They yell at me pure ignorance
And then my feelings shook

You may not ever like me
But it’s a matter of respect
Treat them with human dignity
And they will do the same back

I was inspired to write this after I saw a young girl being made fun of at the movies by girls she has never said a word to in her life. I hope people will get the message of mutual respect.

--Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away from them and you have their shoes.
--When life gives you lemons, squirt them in people's eyes.

I'm really touched by this and I think it talks to all of us. Everyone can relate to this and it's one of the better poems I've read on teenink. Keep writing and make sure you take a look at my poems too!!
