Every Time I Hear You Say

Poetry By: omgitskandice

Sometimes, I get tired of society telling me who I'm supposed to be and how I'm supposed to look like. And I especially don't need it from my parents.

I created this during Political Sociology to keep me from falling asleep, and from getting pissed off.

I'll add a picture when I get home :)

Every time I hear you say:
"Pretty girls don't act that way"
You're really only making sure
That I'm gonna wanna do it more.

And every time that I hear:
"You should be more like this, dear"
You're only going to oversee
That I will only wannabe more like me.

Every time you sing your song
About how I am so very "wrong"
You're only going to start a fight
'Cause I don't want to learn what's "right".

And every time I hear you rant:
"It's not possible; no, you can't"
You're only going to make me long
To find a way to prove you wrong.

Every time you make a riot
And tell me that I should be more quiet
In reality, you'll only beseech
Me to excercise my free speech.

And every time you state a fact
Like: "This is how you should act"
I'm only going to shake my head and say:
"Thank you, but I plan to stay this way"

So here's the moral: don't tell me "no"
That I cannot do it, that it is not so
Don't tell me this; don't tell me that
I am me. You won't change that fact.
