Poems and Poetry

Remain the Same | A Poem by Guy Farmer

They look at him
In horror, disgust.

He doesn’t fit the mold,
Isn’t like them.

Discomfort caused by
Unfamiliarity.

Stultifying averageness,
Stay in the lines.

Lack of internal insight,
Loss of perspective.

Remain the same
At all costs.

Beheading
Extraordinary flowers.
