Respond

"To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best day and night to make you like everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight and never stop fighting."---e.e cummings

They told me to sit so I sat
They told me to learn so I did
They told me to follow the rules so as not to be a brat
I went up and up
I kept being molded and origami folded
I went up and up
They extended their rules and their jaded eyes
I reached for a title and grasped a whisper that said "lies"
I went down, down, down
Back down with a frown
I took a step back
I lifted my head
And…
I made them go red….
In the face…
I told them to look and they gaped
I told them that one size doesn't fit all
That we are all differently shaped
I told them that what I am was now what I was
