Welcome

Welcome to Society

We hope you enjoy your stay

And please feel free to be yourself

As long as its in the right way

Make sure you love your body

But not too mch or we'll tear you down

We'll bully you for smiling

Then wonder why you frown

We'll tell you that you're worthless

That you shouldn't make a sound

And cry with the others

When you're buried in the ground

You can fall in love with anyone

As long as it's who we choose

And we'll let you have your opinions

Bjut please shape them to our views

Welcome to society

We promise that we won't decieve 

And one more rule now that you are here

Is that

You can never leave

Welcome to society

I don't know what this world has come to

Some say that I've been thinking too much

We're moving too fast to keep our heads on straight

And I can feel the despair in this forsaken place

With rules ever-changing 

Remember don't end up hanging

From that ceiling fan

Or in that closet

That you are told never to come out from

Or you'll be buried alive

With comments that are meant to deprive

Your sould wll be toyed with

Youre emotions destroyed 

But remember to survive

Welcome to society

It's all just a game in the end

With no scoreboard

It's been rigged from the beginning

If you don't conform you'll be left digging

Your own grave

So don't be brave, just behave

And become one in the line

Unnoticeable by all those at your side

We don't forget who've died

But decide to ignore those who are alive

Welcome to society

We don't want you to thrive

I don't know what this world has come to

Some say that I've been thinking too much

We're moving to fast to keep our heads on straight

And I can feel the despair in this forsaken place

What a world we've made 

But your soul will slowly decay

And for every devision you make

You almost throw your life away

Don't forget about your social status

How many likes your picture gets

And that's what we've been teaching to our kids

If they don't conform they're outcasts

The odd ones out

Left to figure it out

And we wonder where their anger is left to spout

With no ways to let it out

We get school shootings

Kids killing their mentors and their friends

'Cause they don't understand

That life gets better in the end

We teach them to be afraid

Of this world that we've made

But welcome to society I guess.

 

[NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR]

So I know this is a little long for a poem, and I would like to thank you for getting this far and reading all of "Welcome". This started out as a small six line poem that eventually grew to what it is today. I never thought that my late night poem would evolve into the song it its today. I am currently also recording this into an acutal song and plan to upload it to youtube and soundcloud. Thank you so much for your time, and I hope you enjoyed welcome.
