Not Converting, Not I, The Non-Conformist



How bliss is made in such divine foolishness,
Does it pang your brain if heavy thought was spent?

Should these emotes flow beyond basic happiness,
Would it perplex your reflexes as so disturbed?

Could deeply you deem darkness a shallowness,
Would you steer your fears to follow in it's shadow?


Or would you rather me verse daintfully life's callousness,
Should it appease you and please to defy reality?
