People should aspire to be themselves

Where did the masks get put on

Where did this all start

The root source will forever be unknown

Why are we as humans continuing this tyranny

All we have to do is 

Stop

Halt

Cease

To be someone we aren't

When did we aspire to "fit in"

When did we become robots

Cold

Unfeeling

Relentless

All of us have been victims of this 

We were all this at some point 

Some more than others

We need to get the message out early

To the children

Let them know that it is 

Alright

Acceptable

Okay

To be truly you
