Hearts Be Free

Prepare to get real,
Guys are stupid,
Girls are emotional,
I don’t understand,
Where this bigotry sprang from,
We are all unique souls,
Different in so many ways,
But we put these labels and ideas,
And group people together,
Guys are tired of being called dumb and unkind,
And tired of having to hide our emotions,
Or risk being called Gay,
Girls shouldn’t have to half kill themselves to look pretty,
Their angels just the way they are,
Girls should be able to live out their fantasies of true love,
The Society has twisted and perverted our inner selves,
It tries to pour us into little pre-made molds,
Well I say NO!!
I break free,
I will cry when I want,
I will sing along to any song,
Dress how I feel,
And express my soul,
Come join me,
Don’t let society’s taboos get you down,
Don’t be imprisoned by the POWERS THAT BE!
Let your heart be free.

GREAT JOB! Just a suggestion: change "The Society" to "This Society". It makes more sense and flows better! Love this! 5/5 keep it up!
