Sameness or Fakeness

April 8, 2021

We live in a world,
of facts and truth,
and all adults must
tell the youth,

You are young,
and unwise,
you will
learn in time,

the way your parents did.

Logic will guide you,
logic is true,
logic is a compass,
guiding you through,

the troubles of life.

But kids are creative,
as we should be.
Kids don't need compasses
for they are free,

of the troubles.

Logic makes us similar,
logic is comforting,
logic makes it all,
sameness.

But creative is powerful,
creative is strange,
creative is different,
creative is the key,

To free us from our cage of Sameness, our cage of Fakeness.

 
Last minute entry lol. Had a little bit of inspiration from "The Giver" by Lois Lowry which I had to read.

    Wow, I really like this! The bolded words make it really stand out. I love how you wrote the differences between logic and creativity. Great job!

    Also, I love how you wrote you HAD to read The Giver but you got inspiration for an amazing poem from it XD.
