Intention

 

It's not my intention

To lie in convention

I'm going to stand up

And be me

 

It's not my intention

To lie in convention

I'm going to stand up

And be free

 

(Don Matthews July 2017 Poet in Training)

 

 

The 'normal' person is what is left after society has

squeezed all unconventional opinions and

aspirations out of a human being”

This is great - that quote at the end really hits the nail on the head. I had a psychologist once tell me that or society is truly structured to create functional working adults that follow the system and do not try to deviate or make waves, and that very few of us are brave enough to break from this.
