when love begins to sicken and decay. It useth and enforced ceremony.

Do you realize…
We have a nose to breath out of but
We can breathe out of our mouths?
We are told we can do anything we set our minds to
But when we try, we get told we can’t?
Do you realize…
That we say we are all equal and the same
But also we say
We are different because it is our soul that makes us?
Do you realize…
We are supposed to die in 2012
Well if that is so
Then why do the people that say this
Still plan out there lives after that?
Do you realize…
We are taught that gravity pulls us to earth
If that is so then why
Can airplanes defy it for hours
Birds can soar
And why does nature
Grow upward
If we are being pulled down.
Do you realize…
We all look weird?
Strange forms expanding outward
Coming out of our bodies.
At home we are told only to use inside voices
But when football is on
The people that said this
Scream louder than the talking we were doing.
Do we realize…
That even though we have so many limitations
We still defy them
And get mad when we get in trouble.
We run like animals
Grow our hair like animals
Even mate like animals
But yet we are humans
And they are still animals.
Do you realize…
Cheerleaders cheer for football players
So they believe they can win
But for girl sports
We don’t have guys on the sidelines
In little out fits doing the same.
Do you realize…
That actually making a list
Of what we should see
And know everyday
Is rather weird itself.
And do you realize,
If we are only made up of atoms
On other planets with atoms
There must be life there also.
