A look at forced conformity


Can't we

Truly be free


Can't we

Wake up and see

Beat down

Break down

If you dare try



Discreet little lie

Walk where

Say what

No choice persay

Buy more

Shut up

It's the American way


Only matter

If pockets are lined

Tax breaks

Fair shakes

Rich are defined

Past that


One sided wheel


Is questioned

Is anything real

Photo shop

Sound bits

All a mirage

New chin

Big chest

Shaped decoupage


I quit

All just the same


Are few

No matter their name



Blend with the crowd

Be quiet

No thoughts

Don't be too loud

      Kaiyan-This poem is written beautifully. I especially like the rhythm and flow. Most importantly, I like the poem's message. Great work.

      All poetry is different. I get as many hits on my poems as I do on many of my articles. I tag my name so people from other sites can find my newer work. I have a poem about new beginning that is all right IMO, but it has 3 digit hits some days, just never really know. Thanks for the positive feedback guys :)

      Kaiyan, this is great. It says so much more than it says.

      Hi Kaiyan717 voted up on your poem. It is sometimes necessary to break free of the pressure to conform to others around all the time. Takes courage too.

      There sure are a lot of poems on hubpages. Would you mind if I asked how many views you get?
