"Obey," They Say

And if I’m a hypocrite for saying it,
then so be it.
Then so be it.

Don’t run away.
Turn around.

Smile.

Snap.

You know what they want you to be.
Don’t do it.
Don’t do it.

This is really good. I have a thing for those short poems that are simple, sweet, too the point. And this has a good message. A little rebellion every once in a while is good.

Thank you! You're very right, and I like shorter poems, too.
