You cannot place me in a box
and make me conform.
My personality cannot settle.
Why should art come without logic?
Why kindness without truth?
A student eager to learn
can hold a risky spirit inside
as a celebrity enjoying fame
can also desire peace and privacy.
Do not ask someone
if they are logical or creative
if they are more organized or sporadic
if they like patterns or new forms
because one-dimensional people
do not fit in a 3D world.
Can I not be strong and sensitive?
Can he not be a nerd and athletic?
Can she not be enthusiastic and quiet?
The odd ones of the universe
may be more common than you think.
They’re the ones friends
look for on the first day
and the ones companies
search for in recruitment.
I beseech everyone
to let their personality show
and be more dynamic than a block.
They can be sculptures,
and no matter what their shape,
they are works of art.
