John Prophet

Outside The Lines

Outside
the lines,
where some
choose
to be.
Not conforming.
Not being
where it’s
expected.
Expected
to be.
Expected
by whom?
Expected
by conformist.
Whose
opinions
are valid?
Whose
are not?
Whose
the judge
in such
things?
Nonconformity,
a path
less traveled.
Writing
in the
margins.
Viewing
things
from a
slightly
different
angle.
Observation.
Observation
from a
different
angle
offers
different
views.
Different
outlooks.
Different
solutions.
Conforming
to other
views,
other
conceptions.
Herd
mentality.
Going
with the
flow.
Nonconfomity,
a wonderful 
solution
to the
mundane.
Some choose
to swim
upstream!

    I am all for living outside the lines and do so my self. Good to run into a kindred spirit. We have been stigmatized by sheeple. And that is the least of my worries. Enjoyed this! Thanks for sharing.
