I thought I was done with breaking the rules
Questioning the norms
Walking down the unbeaten path
I thought those times were over
And I had settled down
But my nature has not changed
I will never be one to conform!
I won’t be the one who draws within the lines
Lives the ordinary life!
There are consequences to being different, of course
People will talk
Heads will turn
Whispers can be heard
One can’t stand out and not be noticed
One can’t be loud and not attract attention
One can’t be outside the box and in the box at once!
Here I go again
Marching to the beat of my own drum
Challenging traditional thought
Doing what has not been done!
And where would the fun be
In being ordinary
Doing what is expected
Filling the mould
Change comes from daring to be different
Trying something new
And it seems that’s the path I’ve chosen to live
With the consequences that follow!
