I am who I am and that will never change.
Labels were created to make us all look strange.

If we weren’t judged by our visage, but judged by our soul,
    we could live life to the fullest
             -and that is my goal.

I'm tired of being judged.

peeling off labels is like peeling off skin of a 3rd degree sunburn
i hate how it looks
and it's gonna hurt like hell
but i don't want the evidence there
why do i even care so much?

dear society
i am not "anorexic"
i have metabolism issues

the stickiness gums up
i didn't ask for this
i'm not "antisocial"
but i like being alone

i'm not teen angst
i'm growing up
stop telling me
i have problems
i know i have problems

i'm not canned vegetables
why do you need to know my contents?
i'm not yours to scrutinize
stop staring at my body
stop trying to get into my head

stop slapping shit on me
and expecting me to fit into the little labeled box
i'm not
your labels

i don't understand
why all things in this world has labels
to identify?
i think it isn't.

karma isn't the bitch,
It's us.
We're all a little bit fucked up in the head.
karma tries hard to tell us this isn't how it works,
this isn't how life is supposed to be,
this isn't the path that we ought to choose,
karma isn't the bitch,
its us.
we're all a little bit fucked up in the head.
we make the wrong decisions.
we depend on the wrong people.
and in the end, we sit around waist deep in the mess we made,
and blame karma.
but karma isn't the bitch.
its us.
we're all a little bit fucked up in the head.

I don't like labels.

I don't like labels.
Labels mean restrictions.
Oh, you want to do that?
No no, you can't!

Labels mean expectations and
Expectations means disappointment.
Labels mean something has to be
Ought to be
Like this
& not like that.
We'd constantly be thinking if what we were doing
Was what we should be doing.

I like labels.
Labels mean structure,
And structure means order.
If everything was in its place-
Exactly as it ought to be-
We'd be okay.
We wouldn't have to worry about crossing over the lines
That the world has drawn up against us.
We'd know what to expect
And what to feel.

you shed this superficial skin full of labels,
Writer's straight-jacket

Label; without my appearance I wouldn’t have one,
Without it I won’t be judged before hand,
This is something everyone has for everything,
Relationships, people and situations as well.

Can you imagine how different things would be?
When everything is anonymous and still unique,
Looked at without misconceptions and preconceptions,
When everything is as it is, without knowing the word
That makes you react to it but makes you deal with it.

When you shed this superficial skin full of labels,
You can see clearly the depth which was illusion before,
You can live and breathe freely when it disappears,
But can you leave something that you’re so conditioned to?

Labels... They are completely unnecessary. If
Leigh Garland

Labels... They are completely unnecessary. If you want something, then go get it. If you want someone, then go get them. If you love someone, then go be with them. Find out if they want to be with you too, or spend your speechless life wondering.

Find out, or die trying to kiss them. Maybe they'll kiss you first. Maybe they'll insist on having a platonic relationship anyway. Maybe you'll be right, maybe you won't, but it will be an adventure regardless.

Cut all abusive figures out of the picture. This is your picture. Decorate it however you want. Decorate it with whomever you want. With whomever wants you too. I mean, I want you... I really want you.

Could I be the cherry on top of your pretty please? Could I rest on the tip of your tongue? Could I have just one taste of your tongue? Could you hesitate to pull away first? Could you take hold of my hand again? That was really nice...

Maybe you'd surprise yourself. Maybe you'd surprise me too. Well, I know how to surprise you. How to survive with you. How to stay by your side, too.

Could you stay by my side? Could you survive with me? Now, that would surprise me... Will you be my surprise? Because I want you.

Wrote this one the other night! My friend said he liked it, so I figured I'd upload it here :~)
But what do labels really change?

Your were right.
I act so pitiful.
You were right.
I am negative.
You were right.
I'm a think in absolutes.
You were right.
I'm like a Sith.

But what do labels really change?
Do they warm you at night?
Even though it is,
you'd never admit my statement is right.

Siths are characters in star wars. It's said sith think in absolutes and they believe either you are with them completely to the point or clinging or against them.
