What You Call a Norm is a Vacant Dorm

What You Call a Norm is a Vacant Dorm

A Poem by CRZ

for her.


Norms are bacteria
that ignites hills of
questions…doubts…being left speechless.
It bangs the cerebral
chimes for answers or at least evaluation.
If not…it will corrode the little kid with its lofty imagination.


which she doesn’t roam.


The touch she feels
when she passes something that smells like a norm.
Invisible but well known, she can see it.


that is in the middle of the university for sleepwalkers.

Blindly…
Accepting things,
things such as barriers
how aspirations get shattered
and battered to a disaster cake.
Ready for everyone else to digest
and spoon fed to the brain
generation…2...generation.


she can sense something wrong and goes to her own dorm.

the funny bit is those norms were only introduced by another person and we all too readily accepted them hence the great question are norms really the norm??

Really, some norms are so useless you question the sanity of people who follow it and then there are others which are broken so often that the loop hole has become a norm. Oneway or the other, we would still be able tosurvive if we had half times lesser norms. Very nice poem.

Very interesting!

I like how you compared the restrictive and destructive oppressiveness of "norm" ways of thinking to bacteria. It is like an infection that limits us in so many ways. It can be so damaging like a sickness.

Very original and well done!

this really is a different style, not one that I expected either! Kudos for surprising me! ;) :) I really liked it too! I totally agree, the norm is stupid. Being your own person is much more fun, and you followed your own advice very well! :) ;) Great job, keep up the good work! :)
