Don't keep me in a certain way
I'm alongside the jostle of flight and fury

Don't keep me in a certain way
Such that maroon felt books
lined like maps in highbrow mahogany shelves
feel like my skin

Don't keep me in a certain way
Such that pink, frills, tea and scones
Labor me prim and proper
A stranglehold to the lady that I am not

Don't keep me in a certain way
Such that stern conveys me
As it does the hands of your other slaves
(Your perception does not enslave me either)

Don't keep me in a certain way
Such that the course to my vitality and "I"
do bore me terribly
(it is starting to weather so)

Don't keep me in a certain way
Such that notebooks with lines
Become tyrannical and pretentious
To my sloppy written chops (they go everywhere)

Don't keep me in a certain way
Certain, certain (everything is)
It goes against me
Make me its enemy
Because I'll never be a certain way
Surprise! surprise! (Maybe not) when your poem title totally does not relate to the content. But I lpved how this turned out. As what that critic said, I am most probably shopping for my writing style, experimenting, writing crap, reading crap whatever. This is the most polite in-your-face poetry I can do.

I hate being told what to do. I'd rather be wrong in front of so many people than go against what I am. (Too tired of tolerating people's ****. I used to be an adaptable person because I was too lazy to argue or could just hardly give any **** but people like me have limits too. The number of times I wanted to slap people but held it inβ€”cannot be counted)Cheers thanks.Β Β I am ******* happy I'd get to write even if it's just one poem as it gives me an immense sense of relief for finishing a draft like something from inside me has finally escaped and I can breathe lol. Feeling strangely stable.
