Conform, conform


You are deformed
You are a burden
A burden on life
You must conform

You are unwanted
I can’t look at you
You have to change
So I can bear you

You are crazy
You are not accepted
Here take these pills
Until you shut up

You are a misfit
You are an outlaw
I will lock you up
Until you give up

Do as I say
Bow down and obey
I will break you
Conform, conform

    1. Thank you 🙂 It seems I am thinking in poetry, every thought and emotion is coming out that way. I’d love it if at some point you could give me critical pointers on how to improve or where else to take my poetry. I am so new to poetry and have absolutely no guide or background other than the way words come to my mind and my appreciation for what I see on other poet-bloggers sites such as your beautiful work.

      1. Oh Parmis, I really don’t have any pointers because just like you I write what comes to mind and basically rely on feedback from bloggers to improve. Thank you for the compliment. 🙂

  1. Really excellent.

    The message to the masses.

    Conform or suffer the consequences. Conform or be cast out. Conform or die.

    This takes me back to my days playing in rock bands in the sixties and early seventies. Could have been a lyric for one of the songs I wrote, if it rhymed more of course.

    That’s one of the downsides to writing song lyrics. They really must have rhyme and meter.

    And then Bush the Lesser took it to new heights with, “you’re either with us our you’re with the terrorists.”

    1. Thanks so much! I had a feeling there was a rocker behind your edgy blog and digital art. I fancy myself a bit of a musician (piano) and I make songs too. Some of my postings were initially songs. Too bad I can’t write sheet music but mac’s garage band has been helpful, only if I had a real drummer and a guitar and base player and a vocalist! Have a great night.
