so many people in this world
think they know the truth
with a smile and a nod
they see the evidence of youth
but they do not see the simple fact
that youth and wisdom are not the same
it is a simple little difference
and yet so few have caught this game
they think that words like "way to go"
and "I like" will mean they are great
but little do they know
these friendly backstabs seal them in their fate
oh I could be like everyone else
and say the things you want to hear
but instead I chose not to play
the games that dwell on here
a popularity contest of who's the best
no one can win, the judge rigged the test
tomorrow you'll be mad for sure at me
but I don't care because I'll still be me

Heh heh...Desperado...you sure hit the nail securely with this one. Individuality is not being like everyone else...it's all about being you just as hard as you can. Good to see that irregardless of what others say or think about you, you will still be you....or a ewe.

I agree whole haertedly on this one! The problem in this is...you have to be honest but at the same time not hurt people unnecessarily.Always be yourself but always remember to be respectful of others.

O.K. Des, here's what I really think about you, but I can't say that in public! What I can say, and it's true(not a stab)I'm glad I got to meet you, cause you are truely different.

Or Hymen, Time, and Destiny
Were stalking between her and me.

Micheal, you stole what I was gonna say!!!
GRRRRRRRRRRR

Oh well, des, the poem was great. I hate the way this society is trying to make us all into the same thing, like a robot. Once on the news, I actually heard a school district trying to pass a dress code on the grounds that "We need to eliminate diversity in our schools." Matter of fact, before I even get started here, perhaps I'll post a topic about it in prose.
