To make a difference in the world, you have to be different from the world.

I wish somebody told me
that dreams don't all come true
that Cinderella's just a name
for wishes in the blue

I wish somebody told me
that life hands onions more
than lemons to its people
which are useless to the core

I wish somebody told me
that heart scars never heal
that time is not a remedy
just a scab for what you feel

I wish somebody told me
how stupid I could be
instead of spouting words
like no one's a better me

I wish somebody told me
falling in love's a risk
'cause who knows if they'll catch you
or maybe you will miss

I wish somebody told me
life's harder than it looks
that growing up is full
of tears and high school books

I wish somebody told me
all this before I'd grown
but it's too late for wishes
'cause now I already know

I can't even explain how true this entire poem is. I especially love the one about lemons/onions.
