Why do people tell me what to do?
You have to do this
You're not allowed to do that
Censor what you say
You may offend someone somewhere
Personally, I don't care if I do
Act the same as the norm
Normal is a boring state to be in
I pride myself in being different
Saying yes when everyone says no
Turning right instead of left
Looking up when I am supposed to look down
Who makes the rules people live by?
One time I would like to meet “they”
Even education tried to ruin me
Imagination was wrong
They said that Snow White wasn't real
I think that she was real in her time
We are part of her fairy tales
I will never change my feelings
I will never accept whatever they say
I will take their reality
Replace it with my own
I will make my own choices
I will have my own own thoughts
If that upsets them I have just one thing to say
You can just shove it!
