In this life we have one mission
To find purpose
to belong

What does it mean to belong
to fit in
to disappear

I come to you with a proposition
A sliver of hope
in these dark times

Break free from this expectation
This mission
do something different

Take a step back
a step away from the Status Quo
Break the pattern

I'm here to tell you that it is your time
Time to do something nobody else can do
be yourself

Paint a picture
Sing a song
Stand out

To find purpose
To be free

This poem is so inspiring! I love how you encourage the reader to break free from the norms of society. A lot of the time, people are afraid to deviate and be their true selves, but your poem lets people know that it is far better to "Break the pattern...be yourself..." because letting your own identity shine through is true freedom.
