No room for self expression

People get caught up in the mechanics of life

Having been told how to do things right,

It gives them no room for movement

And they never question why?

They must stick to doing things as laid down and defined,

And if they do they’re told it maintain the order of things

It’s the way they’ve always been done and that’s everything,

Then someone comes along and does it differently

And that really bothers them and shakes their tree,

Even if done better they still get somewhat vexed

That’s not the order of things they say and order is best,

It gives no room for freedom or for self expression

So life’s becomes machine like which is depressing,

We should have the right to do things the best way we see

But that goes against the grain of the control freaks,

Who determine all the order that put in place so neatly

Even though it leaves no for flexibility,

And problems occur there’s no way to navigate it

This should never happen they say because we didn’t dictate it,

But shit happens sometimes and these things have to be dealt with,

But machines are only programmed to do as they’re told,

And machines will never think out of the box and be bold

To ensure s problem can be solved,

Do personal freedom and self expression

Is vital tool in life for it allows for introspection,

It gives people freedom the opportunity, to work on reflection,

And see potential problems from the experience they’ve gained

It teaches you how to better play the game,

So you become more adept and skilled at life in every way.

  2. Very true! It seems as though every aspect in life is somewhat controlled and the ability to get carried away and self-express is inhibited. You’ve recreated this idea beautifully and your poem really speaks to me 😊
