Students of a seventh-grade writing class at Arizona's Queen Creek Middle School were assigned to write a slam poem for their final assignment: It had to be about something they were passionate about, and they would have to perform it in front of the class, according to News 12.
Thirteen-year-old Olivia Vella's poem was so honest, soul-baring, and relatable that it ended up going viral, having been watched over 24 million times (!) on the News 12 Facebook page.
In her poem, Vella talks about the daily trials and tribulations of trying to fit in ("pick an outfit that will fit in with the latest trends and won't make you the laughingstock of the school, more than you already are"), look pretty ("don't forget to style your hair in elegant curls. You can't let everyone at your school see how your hair frizzes up like an electrocuted monkey naturally"), and find friends ("You know you shouldn't hang out with them, but hey, they are the popular kids, and you just want people to like you").
