The Society Beast

The tortured soul so misunderstood
I know of none truly crazy.
Just those that are different.

Ah, society how it groups us together and divides us apart.
Why must it be so?

I am no dork nor weirdo yet society has claimed it so. I suppose than it must be so, at least that is what others say and think. But then How come I don;t feel any different than?
Society says I'm a weirdo but I don't feel weird quite often I am happy until society rears its angry head.

What does the beast we call society say of you?
Are you just as confused as I?
I wonder, do you disagree with it as well?

If so, you best not tell or we'll both be shunned once and for all.
Perhaps that is how society survives.
Ah, well I it doesn't matter much as to how society survives.

There is no defeating the hungry beast by the name of society.
How I cringe at the name alone. Do you also or do you try to feed the hideous beast.

It is pointless you know, the beast will soon eat us all.
The first is always those closest to it so I'll wait to sell my soul. Will you? Or have you already sold your soul to the beast?
'Suppose not if you're reading this. Perhaps keeping your soul will catch on. But then who will feed the beast? And what will happen if the Beast is not well-fed? Profound questions but ones that there truly is no definite answer to at least none that I have found>

  Amen to that! There will always be the inevitable beast called society, but choosing to succumb to it or over powering it are two different things. Rise over the beast! Stab it with your words of truth. Good writing!
