Why Should I Change For You?

Why should I change for you? I have no reason to believe you will be with me forever. Questions linger in my head. I can't believe you asked me to change. Am I not good enough for you anymore? Why do things change? I think I am good enough for you; why don't you think so? I may not be pretty or skinny or even popular, but all that should matter is that I chose you and you chose me. Why didn't it change? I will love you forever but one thing i cannot do is change into what you think is normal. I hope you don't change, because I won't. You should be true to yourself and don't let others change you.

I wrote this piece, because I felt like everyone was trying to change me into something I was not. I just want to tell every teenage girl out there to be herself and be true.

I've been in the same position multiple times. Stay strong and stay true to you.
