Who I am

Hard Times

Trying to be different,

Than who I really am,

Hoping that I’ll be liked

Wishing they’d give a damn!

Trying to be cool,

I hope to look real tough

Maybe make a friend,

Being myself is not enough!

No one likes me for myself,

I guess I’ll just be fake,

Someone that I’m not,

I’m someone new I had to make!

This is a good poem, But being someone you aren't just to get people to like you isn't what anyone should do. You shouldn't change yourself to receive the acceptance of others. If they can't accept who you are, then they don't deserve you trying to change yourself for them.
