She wanted to be different,
But to others she was the same,
She faked a smile, her head held high,
And played in a dangerous game.
"Act normal" they all sneered,
Stand out and you'll immediately lose,
In a monotonous world like this,
There is no option to refuse.
You will agree with what we say,
Stay humble and don't speak aloud,
Put your unworthy opinions away,
Then hide deep within the crowds.
She walked through the street with her favourite mask on,
Accepted hateful comments,
Her innocence had gone.
Her lips were shaking and her voice raged inside,
But in a world like this,
She had no choice but to hide.
The girl longed to be unique,
Speak her mind, make a change,
But people turned her into a clone,
That was the point in society's game.
