9 (who?)
We're the different ones; the artists, the poets,
the musicians sitting in a far off world at the back of all your classes, those that don't
say much unless amongst friends, who
slowly sink into their skin as the years
go by and who find themselves by the maps
on the backs of their arms, not the front
of magazines.

We're those kids who get far too passionate
about history, discussing philosophy as though
it were the changing weather and ridden
with unsatisfied answers about the way
this place works, not merely content with
the spoon-fed ideals so easily consumed.

We're that one-third of young people
actually caring about who's ruining
the country, who let themselves be heard
if it's worth cutting through the noise
and the understanding that sometimes
one song can mean more than an entire string
of emotions.

So here's to the thirty-three percent of us
who would rather live for something
meaningful, as opposed to the latest trend,
the ones that don't mind a shade of obscurity
while they observe the eccentricities of mankind
and who will lie in the ground with only one
identity, not the copy-paste collage of
a thousand, empty others.
Theme: 33%

An ode to those in the shadows, the misunderstood leaders of a generation lacking individuality.

Good shit chick, although i honestly must say that im slowly becoming part of that 67% percent, bu I imagin Im somewhere in between. No critiques are necessary, valid point, great comparisons and metaphors as always.

I thank you very much, though I don't think it matters what percentile range we are, as long as you're true to yourself. :)

Many thanks. :)
People are colorless now; no more individual styles exist except for those who do not fear to be seen as their own person.
