Changed myself

-
I topped their exams,
Changed myself so that I would top their exams;

I was the peak performer at work,
Changed myself so that I would succeed in their measures;

I was everybody's best friend,
Changed myself so that everybody loved me;

I was the universal role-model,
Changed myself so that I would be emulate worthy;

Changed myself so that I won in every one of their 'games',
Failed in 'my' life.

    A very good thinking poem and well written too. The other part of this would be "Changed them". It will be a fight, but isn't that what life is?

    I know a lot of people who make these mistakes. They try too hard to be liked by everyone that they forget to love themselves first. I know I try my best to fit standards that I came up with myself. This way, I wouldn't have to compromise myself.
