A poem about rebellion and establishing your own identity. There are many alternative lifestyles and we don't have to conform to all the rules.

This is my first visual poem. The artwork is courtesy of Phatpuppyart. Here is a link to her page:

The image is taken from a piece of artwork called No More Darkness. Here is the link:

I hope you enjoy this visual poem. A big thanks to phatpuppyart for giving me permission to use the artwork.

Well imho it's passé. I'm not so eager to comment about poetry in english 'cause I'm from Eastern Europe and I'm not sure how does the poetry of West look like, what u guys there expect from it. However in philosophical matter we have here such a conflict between optimistic life road and naturalistic commentary of reality (well it doesn't make anything clear but I don't know how to explain it). What I'm tryin' to say is that in my reality thing like "go ur own way" is so obvious that no-one except young teenagers cares about repeating it. Because it's easy to say "find your own way". There's harder matter - how? And for what? Isn't it easier to just keep with the rules? Why to break rules when mostly those are righteous? Which rules to break? Is it really so necessary to be emotional and full of passion about important stuff? ('Cause it makes people look funny in bad way). And more, and more.
So I stopped just to tell U that, imho, it's out-dated. And I do so 'cause I was alwyas thinkin' that ppl from GB, USA, Germany or France are like into future of thought. So I was lookin' for the Black Rose like in the late nineties but years ago I understood that it's just edgy to be rebellious, dark, arty and pretentious. It's rather about finding some consensus between rebel and society.
Yet I'd like to thank U 'cause ur poem made me stay here for a while. Plus I might learn sth

i really like these poems you have made it sound as if the girls personality makes her a pretty black rose and it proves that the most gothic person out there can still be a rose in side, nice work demonrobber.deviantart.com/art…

Beautiful, This is so true, many of the people in history that have been important, didnt conform to all the rules, they where themselves.

You are absolutely right. It is the individuals and outsiders who went their own way and changed the world. Thanks for the comment and for adding the poem to your favourites.

Your are so right. Everything is run by groups and we just try to conform. It is important to be an individual and stand up for what you believe in. Thanks for the comment.

I think a lot of goths can identify with this. Create your own destiny, don't let others decide it for you. Thanks a lot.
