Homage to Emily Dickinson

Society

Damned if you do

Damned if you don't

Don't dare share your opinion

If it goes against the norm

Society

Where speech is your freedom

But your freedom doesn't come free--

Your words can come flowing

But with the price of your perception

Society 

Speak up for your beliefs!

Lose your 'sanity'

Conform!

Lose your morals

Society

Is corrupt

 

Please,

Take off society's tailor-made mask

It's time to escape the masquerades

It's time to step out from behind the curtain

Let's be a world of individuals

After all, much madness is divinest sense
