in our society
people have anxiety

of other people’s views
we don’t want to be “the news”

we want to be ourselves
they want to be themselves

to scared of what others think
bring us to the brink

our sanity begins to crack
there is no turning back

to the way we were before
now is when we can’t ignore

the ones who try to help
come when we give a yelp

help us back on our feet
and we begin to beat

back our society
and we have more variety

within ourselves we are new
this was the right thing to do

all of this, to see
the truth of our society
