Be Different by Vivi-Xb25 Be Different by Vivi-Xb25
(Just in case you couldn't read it)

Be Different

Being different
Is not an intent
Nor a conscious act
In fact,
Itís not about the make-up or the clothes you wear
Or even how you style and dye your hair
Itís not about TRYING to stand out
Just BE yourself is what being different is all about

So donít get lost in the confusion
That you think you need to cast an illusion
Because you fear you are not an individual
Because we are all equal

But we are all born naturally unique
To the way we look, to the way we think and even how we speak
So why try to be something that you already are?

Itís our flaws that make us who we are
Or like Otep will say ďYouíre perfectly flawedĒ
Donít you realize youíre coming off like a fraud?
When you hide behind your disguise.
Stop it with all the lies
Because being different is not that hard to do
All you need to do is have the courage to be you

This is for this contest: [link]

The reference I use for the pose the female is in: [link]

I use 2B pencil and pencil crayons. Obviously, the words are done on the computer.
