Just In
for Why Conform?

I used to be A Beautiful Mind...thank you for your reviews.
My stuff is better now...so yeah. A lot better than my reviews.
The sentiment of this poem rocks. The only thing is you have an awesome rhyme scheme until the last few lines. Fix that and you got a kick ass poem here.

conformity is something innate in humans. there's pretty much nothing anyone can do about it.
there are heaps of conformity quotes in my stories:
"we apply labels to others. we apply labels to ourselves. we change our labels not to fit ourselves but change ourselves to fit our labels."
"conformity is the ultimate form of self-sacrifice...conformity is peace."
"don't fight the urge to conform. you can't win."

woot to that! There's a saying..."When people are free to act as they please, they usually act exactly the same."
It's pathetic, but true, so I say kudos to anyone who doesn't feel like blending in.

I totally agree with you. I hate it when people change themselves to fit in with other people's definition of 'cool.'

I'm always feeling like the "freak" or "outcast" I get hell for it, read my poem "Thankyou" and you'll see what I mean!


PS It's cool to be different...as my mate Jess says (and I'm sure many other people do!) "You laugh because I'm different. I laugh because you're all the same" or the slightly different take from another mate of mine..."yes, let's be different. Just like everyone else" yeah. right...sorry!

Wowee! Love this one Lyria, and it rhymes! **jaw drops** and it works really well, so you're evil :D

I found this one particularly interesting not just because of it's message that stands on its own merit, but also because the structure reminds me of some of my own work. Great work as always!

Excellent message, which you conveyed very well, and artisically. Great first stanza. Very clean writing. Keep writing.

Lyria, this poem expresses everything I stand for. Great job.

I really liked that word generic...it describes them to a T. Great job. ^_^
