Things have to get worse before they get better.


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.

We've all gone through this situation once; when we know what we SHOULD be and how we SHOULD act, and we rebel.

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

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.
