The assimilation ( origional )
You stand there shaking, in the middle of a crowd. You feel like everyone is watching you, pulling you apart atom by atom. When it stops you imagine you're someone else. Perhaps the blond in the corner happily chatting up those guys or maybe you're the red head dancing with her friends. The one person who is truly watching knows what you're doing and they feel immeasurable sadness. In reality, as you build the perfect defense, you become more and more trapped within a tight nit prison. In the future while less insecure you will also be less kind, the person you once so envied. Farthest from who you once where you will look back not understanding who you where and deny her very existence. All the while that one person, the one from before, will watch as you become who you so wanted to be. You will never notice them despite how alike you were. When you choose to change, to conform, they will have chosen to stay the same. In the end, they will be all the better for it.
