“Be yourself!” They said,

as they told her who to be.

“Look at this!” They exclaimed,

as they told her what to see.


Smiling eyes conceal dark lies.

With judgmental gestures they surmise.


The freedom and happiness is respective

Doing all you can just to stay alive 

Acting out to challenge to form

Is nothing compared to the ideas they warm


The girl used to be so young and so blessed

But look what they’ve made her; just one of the rest.
