Traced Image - Poem by Joseph Tanner
Act in ways people imagine,
Keeping within the picture drawn in mind by society.
Never leaping of the page,
Making a change into what we are,
Keeping it black and white.
Never changing society picture,
Listening to the pure old pop,
Knowing the whole routine,
Dancing like we own the place.
Changing boyfriends every week,
Shagging someone new every night.
Being shallow when it comes to looks,
Looking after our own appearance,
Being vain is a pain on life.
Wanting to draw another picture for society,
One that shows we are no different from the rest.
Only going with what’s been drawn,
One that is traced by society,
One that we and society are afraid to fray from.
