"Have no regrets because at that moment it was exactly what you wanted."-unknown and "You want something, get it, period."-My brother

Who am I?
Who are you?
What is real?
And what is true?

Some of us strive to be an original
But then we let the rest of the world mold us
We let everyone tell us who we are
And who we should be

We forget how to think for ourselves
And learn only to obey
To obey the fashions and trends
To obey and follow the path that 'they' have set for you

So if you truly want to be original
Set your own path
Your own fashions and trends
Set your own way of life

So answer me
Who am I?
Who are you?
What is real?
And what is true?

Just thinking about what being "normal" actually and thinking about how no one wants anyone to know about little things that make them unique and how instead of hiding those traits we should all embrace them.
