It takes effort

There’s this cycle we were brought up to,
Taught in school,
Taught at home,
Get up with the sun, and be no bother,
Sleep when you’re tired,
Or sleep when you’re told.

Like clockwork we rise,
Like gears we fit into place,
Moving when moved and stopping when stopped,
We’ve been at this for ages,
Nothing changed but time and place.

If you fit and you roll,
Just as the others have intended,
Remind yourself not to fall,
For the pattern that is easy.
We are not gears,
We are not manufactured.
We’re alive.
We are individuals.
We are different.
Prove it.
Work on it.
We can change…
We can grow.
