Through-out time we have fought for individuality
Fought for rights to make us equal yet still individual
So why are we trying to be like other people
Everyone pretending to be someone else
Trying so hard to be like them
That we forget the death that came to seperate us
The struggle that they all went through just to make our lives better
So when you see that girl dressed like that
Or boy with his hair like that
Maybe we should just pass on by
Be true to ourselves and act the way you should
Be the way you are truely
Yeah, I quite liked this. Simple, straight forward, gets the point across and shows depth.
My only real criticism would be the structure. I think the content of the lines was good, but they seemed a little clumsy in places. I know this was done in free verse, but I think it could've flowed more smoothly.
And sorry to sound pedantic, but there's no hypen in "through-out".
I shall leave you with this thought: Is it possible for a human being to truely be an individual?
