And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt. ~Sylvia Plath


Why do people insist on seeing,
Everything in 2D?
Flat, flat, flat
You're either a square, a triangle or a circle
The only complexity is you're number of sides
Its like I'm living in flatland
You know, that film they show on the last maths class of the year
WHAT ABOUT VOLUME?
Someone needs to drop a sphere on society's a**
Flat, flat, flat
Or maybe there is no third dimension,
We're all just doomed to see the width and length
And nothing more
And laugh whenever a cubic meter
Is uttered as a measurement
Flat, flat, flat
Personalities
Women
TVs
Phones
Flat
Give it up
No one likes maths
Look up for once
The earth is f***ing round
Yeah
Round is a shape too
I'd like to see you flatten that.


The author's comments:
I'm not one to lecture, though I realise this poem sounds like I am, on appearance. I am probably one of the most weight and look conscious people I know, but then, so is every other teenager I know. But I'm sick of it. I'm sick of how pathetic 2D stereotypes of what a woman should look like makes me feel. I got boobs and an a**. Sue me. And though its implausible, I really just wish that there was a third dimension to society, where we all didn't aspire to be a cardboard cut out model from vogue, size 0.
