Set Free

What is a book without its cover?
What is a frame without its picture?
just an empty hole with no meanings
like a body without its organs
like a person without their thoughts

yet we still all follow the standardized
version of life,
with no opinions
with no complaints
we still do what is expected
rather than what is needed
we still allow ourselves to be herded
like sheep
normalcy is not required for peace or equality
we can live without the boundaries of standardization

thriving on normalcy is not being normal
it is the inability to think outside the box
lets close these doors and open new ones
of acceptance and understanding
lets break these walls of hate and open our arms
to hopefulness and insight
for the world is full of colour
only if you allow it to thrive
