Poem 1: Why?

I have been in a box for so long.
I couldn’t find my purpose,
I kept on asking, “Where do I belong?”.
My mind got dark, my heart got cold.
The more I spoke, I kept on being misunderstood. 
Is this world for me? 

Why do I need to be accepted by people, that can’t even accept themselves?
Why do I need to be loved by people, that can’t even love themselves?
Why do I need people opinions to know more about myself?
Why am I still in this box and not trying to get out?
Why?

Why can I look in the mirror and quickly highlight my flaws, but don’t see my perfections?
Why can I compliment someone, but If they do the same thing, I immediately called them a liar?
Why can I think all the bad things about myself, but not the good?
Why am I being negative and expect positive outcomes?

Why?

Can these whys open up my eyes?
To show me that I’m worth it and that society is a damn lie.
you don’t have to be perfect, you just have to be you.
A changed mindset can change your whys, 

you can become brand NEW.
