Poetry Corner: Haven't You?

Haven't you ever been alone
when surrounded by all your friends?

Living a lie only you can see.
Being the girl all want you to be.

Pleasing everyone but yourself
The best thing I ever did was
to just be me.

Yeah, not really sure what led to this. The experience was about as unforgettable as the poem. Given the flow, I suspect it was something for class, but not really sure what. Perhaps creating our own syllabic poetry, but it doesn't match common patterns such as a cinquain or tanka.

Not every word that a writer puts to paper is brilliant. Yet there is a great message here.
