Heart Shaped Mold

March 1, 2008
By Madeline Dana, Clovis, CA

Acceptance; the key to revolution
Social standing, age, sex, religion, race
Discrimination is our pollution
Youth's tragedy in our desperate face

Starving for power is their evident cause
Inject control to gain obedience
Fitting the mold to erase all our flaws
To avoid our looming fate; braced and tense

Afraid, alone not able to confess
Every want, dream or desire condemned
Our honest real selves; stuffed and repressed
All because societies' views wont bend

No understanding leaves an empty shell
Generations answer. Just ring the bell
