Fly high, above mediocrity

kitesSquare pegs in round holes

Trying to fit in preformed molds

Bowing to all societal pressures

Forgetting all individual measures..

Slaughtering all creative drive

Conforming to every rule, they strive

Internalizing all frustration

Simmering inside like ammunition

Living a life of discontentment

Harboring subtle resentment

Through their lives they trudge

Eventually unable to budge

From the mold in which they were cast

Oblivious to their unique ideas of the past

To promote mediocrity, they are inclined

Just as they were to mediocrity destined.

********* 

Is this how we want to raise

Our children in this rat race?

Destroying their intellect

By snatching their power to select.

Let them find their special place

Outside the boundaries we have raised

Take the road less traveled by,

Never forget to question why.

Never be afraid to express their thought

This, I think needs to be taught.

To rise above the tyranny

Of insipid mediocrity.
