"expectations of conformity"

More annoyed,
Nothing else
strokes the fire of
"SCREW YOU!" wraith:
then society's pressure of
"expectations of conformity".

Yes observant aren't you -
"Say, you've got a cute baby,
Here's a free trial gym pass"
You KNOW where you can
shove that pass right?!

So what, I'm a mum
So what, i'm not thin
So what, I don't wear make-up

I am HAPPY with ME
I have a beautiful son
and my "extra kilos" are
proof of body's love of my son.

I do not care if
I'm not model thin,
or don't wear make-up like a hoe,
to YOUR twistedly absurd society's
expectations of conformity
I don't need to fit in
and I'm happy to let my "different" show.

Conformity, stuff it.
Just be you, while all around are trying to make you something different. I am about as different than most people, but I like myself, whatever you are there is always somebody who cares. I do.
Nice write. A great rant, rage against the machine. Appluaded.
