Stereotypical Mindset

Stereotypical Mindset

A Poem by C.C. Marx
"

I can't stand stereotypes, we are all unique and different, we can't be placed in categories

"

Everyone always thinks

A certain way

As if the characteristics

That come with labels

Are set in stone

That everyone

Falls into a specific group

But what if

I don’t fall into category?

What if I

Break the stereotype?

Is it so wrong

To be unique?

Just because

I’m good at one thing

Does that mean

I can’t be good at another?

I won’t be boxed in

I won’t change myself

To fit a stereotypical mindset.

The first mistake
A band of soldiers finds diplomacy in the dreg forest comes with consequences.

In poetry and to find answers of who we are while walking the ephemeral road upon cracks of pain signs leading you.

I agree with you. There's nothing more insane then a stereotype! Everyone's completely different.

Haha THANK YOU for reviewing!!!! I'm glad you understand, not boxes for anyone
yes. i hate stereotypes and I honestly tend to think less of people who live by them. I know friends who joke on stereotypes, but when i meet someone who is absolutely, honestly surprised to find that I don't go shopping all the time or that I don't stare in a mirror when I walk by one just because I'm a girl, or I don't hate Jews just because I'm German, or I don't do whatever just because of some stupid stereotype, I'm insulted. and I show it :P it's more fun to be unpredictable and unlabeled anyway. Stereotypes are shallow and stupid.

I know how this is. I've broken the steryotypes, and it feels so nice to break the label. Before, I was a steryotype. I was a teacher's pet. Then I was "the new guy" for awhile. Now, I'm different, and unlabled. It's very nice! Well written my freind!

Great piece, thought provoking and has excellent points :) Let's just be unique, not ''labeled'' We are people not things, we shouldnt need or have labels, we are uniquely made not factory pressed.
