If you lack wit, scram!

Conformists of a feather
flock together.

only because he was referred by his mother,
who was concerned that he was growing up and out

next to them, 
the sweet dreams of lives...

What if…

My seeds of shame and doubt
Would timidly venture out
And finally sprout,
But as they reached the light,
Like a vampire, would wither and die
Without the protection of night.
