F You Society [RKFL]

I am not just another girl you think you can label
I have feelings, surprisingly enough
I care about this world
And I sure as hell am not here to make a scene
I am here for me, I don't need you to label me
Like you've labeled everyone else
I am not emo
I am nothing that you're poor little mind can think of
I am me
Lauren Clara Shelby Lolo Archie
I do not follow the crowd
I just look like I do, I don't have to be loud to get attention
I don't have to be a skater, to look cool
I don't have to be skinny to be a ****
I don't have to conform to anything you dish up
So I say F You Society
Think I'm a Rebel? Outcast, spelled with a 'C' not a 'K'?
I don't dye my hair, to signify that I'm different
I don't get every single orface of my body peirced to make a point
I don't buy all the latest clothes to make a fashion statement
How low can one get before they get dusty?
I am not one of you
So get over yourselves and stop coming up with stupid labels
Because you aren't the ***, no one is really

The author's comments:
I wrote this because I was being judged by my peers at school. It drove me into a silent rage and I pontificated that I am me and those who choose to try and label me will get no real response. Why should I conform to what they think?
