Jumping Off The Bridge

conformity… it plagues us

as kids, our parents would always say “if Johnny jumped off a bridge, would you?”

and yet, they don’t heed their own advice. they try to keep up with the Jones’. they conform to standards

they buy the clothes others buy…
they visit the places others visit…

all out of wanting to be perceived ‘better’ in someone else’s eyes

perhaps it’s time we taught them the lesson they tried to teach us. you don’t need to conform. that’s not what we need of you

what we need from you is for you to be you. as you’re special. and you bring a uniqueness to this world that we all need
