Conformist

I am getting tired
Of contorting myself
To fit
This world

If it isn’t one thing
It’s a new thing
Welcome to it
Now you have to
do it

Well,
I figured you out!

Capitalism?
Socialism?
Materialism?

Some ism

I figured you out:

You’re always wanting
MORE
I am never enough
Never doing enough
Objecting enough
Spending enough
Conforming enough

And hell
I never
Feel
Guilty
Enough
Unhappy enough
Or even happy enough

And I have
certainly
never
Been
Beautiful enough
Or appropriate enough

I figured you out!

And you can’t
Make
Me
Unfigure

So. I guess the only solution
Is to not care at all
To do what I want
To be HAPPY
Anyway

To disobey
To monopolize
-my own time
& my own brain

To throw you out
And laugh
In your face

Your threats don’t scare me anymore
I am not scared to live
-anymore

I am far more concerned
That I may die
Without ever having
Pleased
Myself,
even a little

So if you please:
“GO AWA–‘
Wait!

Who am I talking to?

No one. There is no one there.
