Author: The Lost Girl


Hum a tune of joy,
Quote a line of sadness,
Express a thought of gratitude,
Suppress a hint of madness.

Sing a song of mercy,
Ask a human for love,
Delude a personís mind,
Seek forgiveness up above.

Follow a conformer,
Be a political child,
Donít stray from the world,
Live a life so mild.

Go against free thinking,
Do all that your told,
Make everyday the same,
Refuse to make it bold.

Iím tired of being like you,
Iím tired of this game,
Iím tired of conformity,
Iím tired of being the same.

Be your own person

Hey Girl! That's what I like! Be your own person. Sometimes we're gonna be isolated, especially when we don't follow Jane Doe over here and Bobby Lee over there. Wonderful poem!
