The power of words, so strong
Often escapes the minds
Of the uninformed, pull the trigger
If you think it will make you feel any better
Ignoring Karma’s kickback
Will leave your wrist with
The most serpentine twist.
I speak for what I know to be true,
Everything else? I leave to you
“You’re weird” they said, why?
Because I don’t meet the standard for normalcy?
No, it’s much simpler, see
People settle for that which they can categorize
Fail to fulfil your expected role?
Be forever marked as the wild card.
But that’s okay, for the unknown
Is where I feel most at home;
If your approval is as important
As you think it is, don’t be hurt when I say
“I don’t need it”.
