Watch on

Welcome to society,

We hope you enjoy your stay,

And please feel free to be yourself,

As long as it’s in the right way,

Make sure you love your body,

Not to much, or we’ll tear you down,

We’ll bully you for smiling,

Then wonder why you frown,

We’ll tell you that you’re worthless,

That you shouldn’t make a sound,

And then cry with all the others,

As you’re buried in the ground,

You can fall in love with anyone, 

As long as it’s who we choose,

And we’ll let you have your opinions,

But please shape them to our views,

Welcome to society,

We promise we won’t decieve,

And one more rule now that you’re here,

There’s no way you can leave.


She was a girl, young and free

Playing in a field of her own daisies

Her mind, clear as the blue skies around her

Her face, untouched, one of nature’s beauty

Her hair, her curls swaying in the wind

Her smile, lighting up the world

Her life as free as a bird

Until that bird was shot, shot by society.

Her mind is now clouded, clouded by the judgments of others

Her face touched by layers and layers of fake

Her hair stands still, straight as a stick

Her smile, now forced, does not hide her insecure self

She is now just another copy.
