Summits of bodies cruise carelessly,
As bounding observers wonder aimlessly;
Contortions cavort joyously,
As self-deception besieges you;
Tears falter at fortified brims,
Seductions of lies crown your frame;
Never-ending shadows, despairing shame,
Daubed over with evanescent delight;
Conceal your heart, its funeral blood,
Seeping chaotically through your veins;
Shrouded by fanciful respects,
As decaying, you abandon true self to rot.

Great illusions are created in the minds of your readers from your vivid use of adjectives and adverbs. This is very profound from such a young mind. I think it is inspiring.

You are so right! Be true to yourself always - those that would impose their ways on you have little self respect.
