Emancipated

Do not ask me to be more like you, 
For I'd rather be an anomaly than 
A eulogy to those who cannot 
Believe in the unique color 
Of my voice. It sings in 
Neon joy for the rare 
Gift of this life. 
Can you 
Hear? 
Music 
Cannot be 
Disallowed in the 
Name of conformity. 
So I have emancipated 
Myself and will not allow my 
Existence to be reduced to a haiku. 

Visit distorted vision and bear the 
Knowledge that freedom of 
Expression is the truest 
Reward. Know I will 
Not give birth to 
The fruit of 
Regret. 
For this 
Life is larger 
Than even my 
Own conception and 
I will not commit blasphemy 
For the sake of your acceptance. 
I won't be distilled into a more socially 
Fashionable version to obey bi-polar laws.
