A poem that I myself really enjoy and enjoyed writing. About society...

What have we become?

A place where difference is unacceptable,

and change is something that's not suspectable.

Slim bodies that are more like sticks,

people betray one another with their bags of tricks.

Where we must be a certain way to pursue dreams,

and shove down one another's silent screams.

What have we become?

Are we nothing more than an illusion,

bound together by the society's confusion?

Sun-tanned skin tones,

everyday buying new Iphones.

Each person with different qualities,

suppressed for their individualities.

We are only people built up by bones,

filled with words stronger than sticks and stones.

What have we become?

Will we be anarchists,

or the protagonists?

Who influnce our own new story,

or point fingers for accusatory. 

You choose,

who to be,

the one covered in war tatoos,

or the one who makes a new decree?
