Different Faces, Different Minds

I’m tired of going through this act

Another female acting all whack

I wasn’t the one who did those things

But you believe that somehow I will

Why are you always on edge about me?

Please, I insist you take a chill pill

Maybe I’ll care just a little more

Why not just wait and find out?

Everything I say is taken with a grain of salt

You’re never sure and always in doubt

Not all guys are the same

It’s more than just a difference in the name

Not all men are dogs

Some things we do is in our nature

You don’t do it with us

And you expect us to always act mature

What is all the hostility for

Even if I’m an ok guy

I still don’t get a chance to try

And no explanation as to why

Wait…

Before you chop me up

And tear me down because I’m a male

Just know that I could be doing the same

And generalizing you with the bad females

You know…

The ones that are all about the green

The ones that are just plain mean

The ones who only care about what is seen

I could place you into a category like that…

But I don’t…

Everyone deserves a clean slate

But it seems like I’ll be judged before I’ve begun

Don’t see why I pay for what someone else has done

If your mind is made up…

Then that’s fine…

Next time just try to look deeper at the person

Who fits into the outline…

 

Different…

Break Free

The arms of conformity stretch far and wide

Trying to keep you in

Because no one likes the outside

Telling you how to act

How to look…

How to talk…

What to believe in…

Driving people crazy

Trying to be

Perfect droplets of society

Puppets on a string

Having nothing to stand for

They strive to be the norm

Because having people around

Makes them feel warm

Individuality…

Seldom exists in a place like this

And for sure it’s looked down on

Because it’s so different

Minds are being washed thoroughly

At times also taken away

Loosely holding on to your beliefs

Allows them to be easily swayed

Break free from the bonds

Live your life the way you wish

Find your own way

Stop schooling with the other fish

Never be afraid to be who you are

If you hold on to this

You’ll go far

Sometimes it’s ok to follow the norm

But please

Try try try

To never easily conform…
