To Withstand The Crowd - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

if all of you shall dance
to be noticed
i won't, i would be still like
a post
i would stand tall like a wall

if all of you go right
to be noticed i will go wrong
and if all of you wear yellow
to be noticed
i wear black

and if all of you are so silent
like zombies
i will scream and to be notice well
i will dress like an angel

if on the stage the three of us are
you two tumble
i will make bubbles like a fish
as you tumble like the weeds

i like to stand in the crowd
in the sea of conformity
i would like to be the black urchin
of your discomfort

if i must bite you i will
only to be noticed
for you never really care
you never really really love me

that 's the reason why.
