The crowd told me to wear a skirt
I wore my spiky shorts
The crowd told me "keep to yourself"
But I express my thoughts
The crowd told me to have blonde hair
I dyed it blue and pink
The crowd told me to watch TV
I chose instead to think

The crowd told me to like dubstep
I listen to The Cure
The crowd told me to drink cows' milk
But I don't see what for
The crowd told me to say I'm straight
But that's only half true
The crowd told me to have a baby
But I don't want to

Now the crowd are closing in
Calling me a freak
Now the crowd want me to conform
I'm too tongue-in-cheek
Now the crowd hate my differences
I don't think I care
Now the crowd are sick of me
And these strange clothes I wear

Now I'm looking for someone
That feels the same as me
Now I'm looking for someone
Who wants to feel more free
Now I'm looking for someone
Who's strange and kind and true
Now I'm looking for someone
But is that someone you?
'Cause weird friends are the most interesting

Your deviation has been featured in Dare-to-Differ, a startup literature collective focused on art that strays from the status quo or holds a message of non-conformity. Without people supporting these values, the world would never change, so artists that stray from the norm are on a truly special level indeed. Keep your mindset, and keep making great art!

Interesting that the last stanza has a substantial rhyme and rhythm, while the previous stanzas lead to the conclusion really well.

In my opinion, the contextual analysis about crowds and societal conformation makes this work especially unique and gives it a texture of bluntness tailored for the 21st Century. For the most part, the poem uses contradiction well. That sense of being rejected is what makes this work a good composition. Its an honest take on what crowds are by their nature.
