Society's Robot

They told me I was too fat, so I changed a little.

They told me I was too stupid, so I changed a little.

They told me I was too ugly, so I changed a little.

They told me I was too this or too that, so I changed.

Soon enough, the littles turned into lots.

I became so lost, so ashamed, so different to the point where who I was wasn't who I was meant to be.

So far gone from who I was, that I couldn't remember what it felt like to feel real.

Yet still I was taunted, and I didn't know why.

So I kept changing, I kept morphing into a robot of society, which made the feeling of insecurity and loneliness become heavier than any weight.

Eventually I found that they will judge you no matter who or what you are.

Suddenly, I felt this long lost sense of authenticity return.

They told me to change, so I did.

I changed back into who I really was.
