My Own Being

I don't feel pain, but my life isn't easy.
And yes I know I am my own best friend.
No one cares but I am so much stronger because I will fight until the end.
I need to escape from this true-false world...
This undamaged destiny
Can not get caught in this endless circle. This ring of stupidity.
Out with my own
Out to be free
One with my mind
Why cant you see??
I have no need to hear the things that they say, for, my life is for me to live in my own way.
Violate my mind and destroy my fellings,
but DO NOT tell me what to do.
I don't care because I'm on my own side I can see right through you.
Feed my brain with your so called standards. Who says that I am not living right??
I'll break away from your common fashion, then maybe you'll see through your blurry sight.

It's really deep. That's what makes a poem amazing.

Very good, but you need to be a little more careful with typing the correct spelling, but other than that...great writing!

This is really awesome. I cant count how many attempts at poems about society's rules and regulations i have had and failed at. But this is a truly poetic way to put it out there. It's great how just the words of one infinitely talented person can make someone see a whole new light, a whole new side of things.
