Coming Disconnected

Contributed by softerware on Monday, 5th September 2016 @ 10:45:53 PM in AEST
Topic: InspirationalPoems

To become like everyone else, is to live in clothes that will never fit us. Forgotten for how well we blended but remembered fondly for our accidental leaks of authenticity, (that crooked smile that simply wouldnt stay tucked under our hat)!.

Rather than re-make ourselves into what we are not, perhaps it would be simpler to leave the parade just one time; march out of step on wobbly knees, and wander off on a journey without street signs or a laugh track.
Although we can always go back, if you are very fortunate, when you are far too busy being yourself to notice, a few will come to walk quietly beside you, looking to discover in themselves, the imperfect and incredible stranger that you found the courage to be so long ago.

This flow is excellent in so many ways,
it/'/s hard not to become assimilated in this world
I am always out of step with the norm with that crooked smile.....

I personally believe social media has killed off so much personality of the world we live in. It/'/s easier to conform behind a phone or computer rather than be ourselves. Being scared to be true always wondering what that stranger might think. Who gives a damn. Great write. This got the blood flowing

Preaching to the choir here but absolutely love the poem. Great message for the sheeple.

Thank you,
