Favorite Quote:
"When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down 'happy'. They told me I didn't understand the assignment, and I told them they didn't understand life."

There will be people who will try to bring you down,
And people who will break your heart.
There will be people who will try to do you wrong,
But not everyone is like this.

There will be people who talk bad about you to your face or behind your back;
There might be people who gossip about you.
Whatever you do, don't take offense,
Because not everyone is like this.

Life will seem dark, there's no getting around it,
But it doesn't have to always be like that.
Be patient, and when they start the rumors,
Remember that not everyone's like that.

Life is a mystery, without a doubt.
With turns for the better and for the worse.
But keep in mind when someone calls you names,
Not everyone's like that.

The author's comments:
What inspired me to write this poem was my experience with people who tried to bully me. I know it hurts, and sometimes the pain can seem overwhelming. I want people to take away the fact that there are people who will care about you and that if you find the right people to be around, life won't seem so dark and cruel.
