You are made of clay
and can be moulded
into a shape
A beautiful, imperfect shape
that is yours,
and yours alone
So why then do you decide
to take a shape
that has already been sculpted?

"If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary-wise; what it is it wouldn't be, and what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?"

I think this is really inspirational! Perfect rhythm and choice of words. You should be proud:)

I love the contrast of the first few lines with the last sentence; it really drove home the point of the poem and it made the poem unique... and amazing!
