Just my view on how people react to petty diferences.

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?
