Be you, don't be Us

Be you, don't be Us

A Poem by aimless_wanderer

be different!


People do the same exact thing every single day

For that their lives are in tune with their schedules and the next development on Grey's Anatomy with doctor Grey

for tv determines their happiness, showing them how to say

yes to everything they don't want to do just because they want to get their next weekly pay.

The only thing I can say to you is to stand out

from the crowd for they'll drag you down, clip your wings, and detour your route

to become who you want to be for they will destroy you like that of a drought

on a bountiful land full of promise for that is what you are about

to face when you step into this world full of foul play, deceit, and lies

for here you are on your own with no friendly ties

because every one you know will follow the flow with taking up bills for a new car, tv, and what your boss buys

for they are compelled to suck at the teat of power to feel that they're the ones who flys

their own lives, but its actually the other way around

for that they have ensured that they will be forever bound 

ball and chained to their desk, computer, red stapler, and pictures of family and hounds

who wait at home for 6 o'clock everyday for you to make your rounds

Does that sound like a life full of happiness and joy?

do you wish to be played by all those around you as if you were a cheap toy

to be thrown around and around by the girls and boys

who believe they have the power to control all, even the colors GBIVROY,

do what you must, but i cannot stress anymore than i have

to go out into the world, venture out and give a good hearty laugh

with new people who sing their own tunes on their own separate paths

to become who they want to be, so choose your fate and do the math

I began writing pieces of poetry around three months ago. I'm hoping to get better so I won't be too much of a scrub anymore. more..
