God : emcee :: I : freestyle

You know that saying “When God made you, he broke the mold.”? Well, I’m beginning to to think that when God made me, he didn’t even bother to use one…

I’m like water.

Flowing. Ignoring it’s boundaries. Always moving. Changing its course. Eventually it gathers itself together and even then you can’t contain it, you can only immerse yourself in it.

As much as I try to “get in” where I “fit in”, the more I realize how fluid I truly am. I don’t fit in and I realize more and more sometimes I just don’t want to. I embrace my individuality. My deviance. I wear it like a badge of honor.

I will never be what people want me to be because I will always be myself. And people very rarely want you to be yourself. They want you to be like them. To think like them. To agree with them. To want what they want.

And you know what they want?… Conformity. Uniformity. Because most people fear what they do not know. It’s easier for some people to like you if you remind them of themselves. It’s easier for them relate to you because they don’t have to reach very far to grasp your thoughts and ideas. They don’t even have to come out of their boxes.

And if you don’t fit into their box, they will try to put you in another one.

Everything in it’s place. Even me…

So I say, if you are so bold as to presume that you can put me in a box*, know that it won’t contain me for long. Water tends to naturally erode its barriers.

And since you’ll never truly grasp the contents, make it easy on yourself and just label it “Other”.



*It’d better be a big one. I tend to get a little claustrophobic.
