Madison Campbell, Grade 7, Flinders Christian Community College
We look up to our peers simply based on their appearance.
We live broken lives with nobody to tell our stories to.
Our lives, a mass of short lasting pleasure and desire;
We have only ourselves to face the world beyond.
Our opinions are based on what we are "supposed" to think,
Yet we strive to find ourselves in a mass of a river known as mainstream.
We cannot find these things in a mainstream world; yet we choose to live in one.
And when will we learn to find our own style,
A distinct beauty that lies within?
It gains the envy of others wether revealed or not;
But we never acquire it due to our fear of failure.
Oh, if only we knew what a unique world was like.
