Insert your opinion here

Ive been writing a LOT more poetry lately. My poem this week was inspired by late night thoughts. I was going thru Facebook one night when I couldn't sleep, and I continued to see a reoccurring theme. We tend to insert or own opinions about a persons situation, or their life based on what that person presents to social media. Instead we should be standing by them, and allowing them to simply express themselves without the fear of judgement or "insert your opinion here". So without further ado…

In the wee hours of the morning…

When I can't sleep

When I can't dream

When I'm too tired to move

When I'm too alert to care

I don't think

I don't speak

I do blank

I do insert something that you think I do here

Throughout our life we are told what to do

Throughout our childhood are interests are warped

Even if I tell you what I like you look at me as if I'm some kind of flight risk.

That can't be right.

You can't be that guy.

Your not into that.

You don't know anything about insert my interest here.

You should try insert your opinion here

Throughout life we are told what to wear

Throughout adulthood it is called a uniform and standard hair.

If I break the mold I'm at a risk of losing my career.

If I want to mix it up like all the girls I'm told that's not right.

You don't know anything about my insert expression here

You should try insert your opinion here

Throughout life we are told how to behave.

Throughout adolescents we are shaped into our believes about ourselves.

I can't possibly be whatever I want.

I have to follow the status quo

You don't know anything about insert my own viewpoints and opinions about my self here

You should try insert your opinion here

Insert your opinion here

Not that I asked for it.

Not that I needed it.

Not that I wanted it.

But go ahead insert your opinion here.

Insert your opinion about…

My life

My rules

My story

My journey

No go ahead. I'll wait until your done.
