When Pushing Isn’t Doing It, Shoving Is The Best Solution

I was always pushed
To think a certain way
Even though now I’m constantly told to be myself.
I was always pushed
To dress modestly,
But all the stores display mostly ripped jeans and tank tops.
I was always pushed
To keep my voice down
But my high pitched laughter is something I can’t control
I was always pushed
To be normal so that people would accept me
Yet everywhere, people are promoting ‘do you’
Ever since I was a teenager,
I was always pushed by what society deemed as ‘okay’
But society is hypocritical.
With many faces, one has lost count.
But since I’ve been pushed around so many times;
By empty plastic faces,
Now’s my turn
To finally just;
Shove.
I’ll shove it in society’s face
To be me,
Dress the way I wish,
Laugh until I can’t breathe,
And as loud as I want,
Speak my mind and not give a damn.
Because when push comes to shove
I’ll shove with all my might.
