    Alienation
    In this alien nation
    CONversation
    Hiidden humiliation

    Yesterday is tomorrow
    Present the present as yesterday's sorrow
    Regurgitate and swallow
    Pretend not to follow

    Think away thoughts
    And reason away reason
    Close your mouth and be heard
    Until the scales are even

    Reveal your soul in glimpses
    Hide your thoughts in the words
    Confuse the cons cunningly
    Desert what you deserve

    Now survey what remains
    And champion your resilience
    Accentuate your eccentricity
    As they marvel at your brilliance!

    This piece has been in the making for a while..(I got a few more versions to it), but I think this one gets my point across. Thanx again for reading.
