I would like reviews on how to improve my writing style, especially in poetry.

Don't Forget Me

June 19, 2019

I was not
Different
Because I was Indian
Because I was a girl
Because I was smart

I was not
Different
For all of the reasons
That I was
Unique

I was
Different
Because I waited
Because I laughed
Because I cared

Not superficially
Not in fake smiles
In brightly distant eyes
In Instagram comments
In manufactured flowers

I was
Different
Because I was there
For you and
For everyone else

Because I gave it my all
Recklessly
Completely
Passionately
Inexplicably

I was
Different
Because I mattered
Enough to make
A difference
