I'm like a daisy lost in a field of roses,
and I was insecure.
Because all the flowers around me were so beautiful,
that they were admired by everybody.
I wanted to blend in,
so I painted myself red.
I wanted to be beautiful like their petals,
so I twisted myself so that I could be like a rose.
I changed myself so much,
to the point where no body recognized me as a daisy anymore.
I tried to fit in so bad,
that I lost myself in the process.
So, I laid my head down,
With tears in my eyes.
And that's when I saw her,
The most beautiful sun flower I've ever seen.
Her beauty outshined the roses,
with her bright yellow petals that resembled the sun.
And when I looked around,
I saw many more beautiful flowers.
Proud that they were unique,
and accepted who they really are
And that's when I realized,
that each and one of us are beautiful in our own way.
I wanted to be somebody else my whole life, and I want to change that perspective of mine. I want to love me.
