My heart is heavy and overflowing
Am I selfish-Am I stupid to believe?-Believe that even the lowest scum deserves their time in the sun?
A second chance?
Is it childish to see the good side in people, despite petty differences?
Am I considered naïve because I don’t understand these borders created by labels?
Prep, Emo, black, white, Asian, Hispanic, gangster…
They’re merely words used to divide us-To create superstitions and unnecessary fears
Don’t call me self-centered because I’m not mourning for myself-I mourn for society.
Am I selfish-Am I stupid?
Should I care about every little difference-Should I become like everyone else?
In my worst nightmares I’m no longer a wallflower, I fit in with everyone.
But, in order to do that, I’d have to give up my personality-My individuality-Myself.
So, tell me, am I really naïve?
