I hate conformity
I loathe it
so much resent
at the thought of "conforming"

"Being in the norm"
is not natural
it's normal

I am special
just like everyone else
I wish it wasn't so
I want to be me

accepts conform
excepts the weird
and hates those
who don't act "norm"

I believe in "being you"
and not all this garbage
about "being like everyone else"
News flash: everyone is different!!

I am who I am
I do as I please
I break the laws
the rules of life
for they are set by liars

yas yas, ruler makers lie, yet rule breakers die Behind the bars that society set for those who they'd need to "put in their place" so to speak. To attack the system you have to from behind it at a stand point that doesn't collapse under the weight of the fat cats that run it...... I love your working of this poem c: keep it up... The justice has spoken

“Whatever you are physically...male or female, strong or weak, ill or healthy--all those things matter less than what your heart contains. If you have the soul of a warrior, you are a warrior. All those other things, they are the glass that contains the lamp, but you are the light inside.”
― Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

This is so very truthful.

As a statement, this is loud and angry and sets the tone well. However, I think as a poem I find this kind of like a child screaming sort of thing. I don't know how to take it seriously... Maybe if you wrote it with more of a solemn tone, rather than an angry voice, it would work better for me. Sorry if I sound mean. I'm just trying to help :) I like the insistence behind it though
