This is how the world spins.
There are thousands of quotes and advices
on being authentic, being true to yourself,
being yourself as you are,
but the world doesn’t accept it
when one person
takes a stand
to be true to themselves,
to not follow things blindly,
they are made to stop it,
to give in,
to follow just like everybody else.
And when asked a simple question,
‘Give me a reason why must I do it?’
the answer is,
‘Because the whole world does it. Because you will be considered crazy if you don’t.’
Why don’t we have the courage
to be supportive of someone
who is trying to find their own path?
but only after you follow,
only after you become a slave to the system.
but only after you stop questioning,
only after you join the herd again.
