Conformity

Conformity

A Poem by Darkgirl


Conformity



Behind our lies

we are all the same

So full of s**t

And nobody to blame


Trapped inside

Like a bird in a cage

Trying to fly

But there is no escape


You close your eyes

And see only black

Trying to make up for

All that you lack


Away from the world

And all alone

Praying for a smile

You were never shone


Screaming for life

Trying to break free

Wanting to be someone

That you’ll never be


But deep inside

You know who you are

Cant hide from yourself

No matter your scars


Because behind your lies

You are the same

So be yourself

No matter what they say

Featured Review

This is really nice Darkgirl . The rythm. and flows consistent all through out but you hit a snag on that last line of your last stanza which is the most critical . I have some simple suggestion but totally voluntary . Take it or simply leave .It doesn't change or affect the whole dynamic of your piece.
" So be yourself and come out that shell ."
