A Curious Mind W(o/a)nders

Shall NOT conform

Push me to the wall,
Snuff me out,
Misunderstand me,
Or humiliate me...

Yet shall NOT conform to your norms.

Paint me crazy,
Slam me for my wild ideas,
Bemoan my lack of conventional sensibilities,
Excruciate me for not talking your talk...

Yet shall NOT conform to your norms...

For I know the meaning of my talk, I know it's different,
And I know that I don't yet know to speak it in your language,
And I know I have to survive till I figure out your language, or find an interpreter,
So that you see what I see...

Survive, I WILL; Conform, I WILL NOT.
