Bonsai


I am a bonsai tree

Getting cut into the shape society wants

Horrified of what would happen if i let it out

I would be looked down on

Shunned by everyone

Society is a woodpecker and i'm a frail tree

I will fall with the slightest of pressure

So i act like everyone else

Hoping no one will realizing i'm holding back

Because if i showed what i am holding back i will be looked down on by the eyes of many

My friends are aphids just sucking what makes me unique out of me

I’m held back by the chains called society

I want to break free

I want to grow how i grow 

I want to be able to withstand the pressure and gazes of people

I want people to accept me for who i am

But as long as were social beings

That won’t happen
