The alarm clock tells you loud and clear
It's time to get your act together, dear
So force yourself to get out of bed
Forget what all those people said

Now's the time to change your routine
Of spending all day with the laptop screen
It's time to dress up like you used to
It's time to be the brand new you

So wipe all those silly tears away
Because we're living for today
The past is long gone, it's time for change
So dress how you want, no matter how strange

And wear whatever makeup you want
You're brave enough to do what the haters can't
As long as it makes you feel good about yourself
Then what is it to do with anyone else?

Show the people that hurt you so
That you will never sink as low
Show them that you're still yourself
That you won't simply be put on the shelf

Bare your teeth and they'll get scared
Do the things they never dared
In time you'll see their jealousy
In time they'll copy you and me

You see, they live with conformity
A dangerous thing, as you can see
Break that pattern and they go mad
Acting like it's so damn bad

Don't take note of what they say
Now is the start of a brand new day
So do what you want, join me in the fight
We'll show a world of normal that weird is right
Wrote this at 3:19AM last night 'cause I couldn't sleep.
Basically about not conforming simply because you're expected to. You feel more like yourself if you dress how you like and do what you like.
As Adam Ant says, ridicule is nothing to be scared of.

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!

The only complaint I have is that your phrasing gets a bit repetitive at different parts.
Repeats: "So" ... "you want"... "yourself" ..."you see"

These are the places where repetition detracts from the flow of the poem, rather than adding to it, in my opinion.

Other than that, the idea is a good one and it is well communicated. Yay!   :twist:

I like your things, they have rhythm and u they're kind of explicit which is kinda cool, a person can see right through you and what you want to say, no riddles intended. :D

Oh god, I can't stand people like that. I've been through a lot of crap like that, where the teachers don't do a thing so when you stick up for yourself they tell YOU off. It's ridiculous. The safest bet is to just try and ignore it, like don't show any reaction at all. Then the people calling you names get bored and think that you don't care.
Aww, you're welcome :hug:

Welcome. That's so me there. I like dressing in both the girly and gothic ways. I love pink, yet I love dark, black clothes. I wear anything cute, yet I'll wear something from Hot Topic. I listen to pop, electronic, yet metal and rock and guess what? I don't care what other people will think! It's my two styles I like, so I'll wear them both! No one should judge anyone for their style. Not even if it's the "opposite." ;)

Again, well done.
