I Am a Robot of Society

I conform to the ideas of popular culture.
A simple opinion can change me
Morph me
Into a creation of the Masses.
Different is what's next.
I see no image of myself,
Only of what I am created to be,
clay in a Trendsetter's hands,
Mainstream as my muse.

I want to be accepted.
Praised for my conformity,
Not for my individuality.
I want to be part of a whole,
a We
I do not want to be solitary.
I want to follow, rather than lead.

I will
Starve
Dye
Pierce
Burn
In order to be seen as an equal.
I will do what it takes to shine
In a sea of sameness.
I will be the best
Of monotonous nobodies.
Whatever is good for them is good for me.

I will change to fit the mold.

I am a robot of society.

90 percent of the world is stuck in this delusion because they do not seek the boundaries of such an existence to know what lies beyond them. It is the most heart-breaking revelation one can learn in life, but each of us has to work out our own salvation and break free.

This is so true in today's society. I personally love my individuality, but many people would rather just blend in.  It's a great poem, though.
