A Poem by TheLonelyWriter

I got bored.

Stop before you do,
Think before you speak.
Bite your tongue,
Turn the other cheek.

Watch what you say,
Who you are, what you feel.
Be a puppet, not a puppeteer
Anything you want isn't a big deal.

Love comes to those who are perfect.
We learn to pity the underdog that can't seem to win.
Perfection has a definition.
That no normal person seems to fit in.

You're going to be hated,
Too skinny, too fat.
Too tall, too short, never just right,
You're taught who you are, never to be that.

You're dammed if you do,
You can follow every rule they place.
You're trying to hard
Putting on a fake face.

You're dammed if you don't,
You're seen as a horrible rebel.
Reality sucks, you're never going to win.
But you can't escape it, life is a battle

If you couldn't guess by my username, I'm just a lonely person who loves to write. I'd love to be able to pick a genre to write, a topic, or a motive, but narrowing it down to one or two isn't my thin.. more..
