Living in your own way.

Yet there is nothing unusual
About not conforming.
There have been many non-conformists
And there will be many more.

Nor is non-conforming being free
When the “non” is a response to conforming,
When your only choices are conform or not,
As if there is anything to conform to or not to conform to anyway.

To truly be free
Is to make both conforming and non-conforming
Irrelevant. To see the illusion in
“Normal” and “different,”
And simply be.

    I’ve always been a Non-Conformist because we are all different and need to express ourselves, due to us all being unique. It takes a high self-image to not follow the crowd

  2. Have never really been a conformist.. I see my self as a transformer. I believe we all have the power to create and become.

  3. This is how I view true education.
