"Sell Me Who I Am" by Eric Wayne Flynn

Updated on November 25, 2013

"Sell Me Who I Am"

Help me world!

I don't know who i am

So, you gotta tell me

Label me, brand me, anything, sell me

Tell me i'm good, tell me i'm great

Tell me instantly, I can't wait

Mold me in a lump, throw me in an oven

Make me perfect, make more... a bakers dozen

Sweet! We step out into the lights with big bright smiles

Look at all of us, beautiful, so similar, rows n rows, miles n miles

Our collective heads turn and lock on our interchangeable eyes

No differences at all, life is comforting without surprise

Elegant and grand, you wearing what i'm wearing

Identical thoughts, staring and glaring

Stale collective identity, no one caring

So you want in?

You wanna be a part of us?

Me? I'd rather die

Good! It's our world anyways...Free thinkers need not apply

      That was a fun read, Eric Wayne Flynn, love the ending contradiction between wanting to fit in but maintain individuality. We cannot escape our similarities as we bash each other for our differences, right? I enjoyed this, voted up and interesting.
