I wrote this when I was reflecting upon society as a whole and how it tells people they are something when infact nothing is as it seems, as we are are all moulded in the same society with the same values, which in consequence we much all influence eachother in one way or another, even if unknowingly.

We are painted by

others even though

we all

class ourselves

as individuals,

which really

is the words

of complete crackpots.


We are canvases for


to draw what they like.

To be torn and reformed

like paper mache

in perfect presentation,

to a jaundiced eye.


This insane notion of not allowing

society to impact our soul

and perception is nonsense

because you can’t leave a

traffic collision

without your body being

garnished with purple

and blue.
