A great poem with a strong and important message.
No I wasn’t what you thought I’d be.
I’m not a vision of beauty,
nor a voice of perfect reason
But you forget, I never claimed to be.
I will not help you realize
the fantasies the media moulded
or the dreams you thought
were of your own devise
I don’t want to be chained
I don’t want to be churned
into this cement of mediocrity
that binds the bricks of society
