You, Your own

by taking off the mask (writer), Los Angeles, November 29, 2009

He stares in the mirror not sure who’s looking back
Just a blank face that is covered in black,
A smile is not spread across his face
A grimace takes its place,
Some make-up around his eyes
He tries to see what’s inside,
But his soul is dark
As is his mind,
He lets out a little smirk
To show the world he is here,
People point and stare
But he doesn’t care,
Being himself is all that matters
He likes who he is
So do his friends,
They have a group who don’t need to all blend in
Looking like society is the least of their priorities,
Keeping a distance and not listening
Is their motto,
Having fun and breaking rules
Is just another teenage rule,
Who’s to say they can’t wear those
Listen to this or look like that
Who has the right to tell them how to act,
This is a life not a fact
There should be no rules or guides
It should all come from what’s inside,
Don’t try to hide,
And for sure don’t lie
Of what your heart desires,
And most of all don’t become another clone,
Be you, your own.
