"The premise upon which mass compulsion schooling is based is dead wrong. It tries to shoehorn every style, culture, and personality into one ugly boot that fits nobody." - John Taylor Gatto

Urgent Help Needed!

One of our friends desperately needs a caregiver who can help her to survive day to day. Can you help? Even just a share can help! More info here.

Like Everyone Else

by


Am I supposed to be normal
Like everyone else?
Just like the book,
You put back on the shelf?

Live my own life
I try to defy
All those that tell me
To work nine to five

Eight hours a day
A mindless drone
Am I just a number?
Or that numberís clone?

So unoriginal,
Always the same,
Am I the only one,
With the guts to complain?
Am I the only,
Or am I insane?

I really like this poem...it's so true, unfortunately...all this pressure to become "a mindless drone" rather than following your dreams.

My favorite lines:
"Am I just a number?
Or that number's clone?"

Nice work thoughtmaker, I love it!
