It's important,
to go to sleep
     to listen to rules,
          to do what 
you're told

It's important,
to respect
     one another
          along with 

But did it
     like there are other importances
          out there?
For example, me?

But I'll twist my words
into riddles
     and speak in
different tongues

Until I see the day
when you show
      my importance
           for you,
back to me.
