Coloring outside the lines

Stay inside the lines they say

Or you’ll end up just like the rest

Keep the path always within sight

Life is just a test


To pass or fail is up to you

But there’s only two options left

So what will you do

When they ask of you

to give up and follow suit


Well I’ve always colored outside the lines

I thought the picture looked better that way

You said you couldn’t stay with a person like me

Who refused to confine to life’s design

Too lost and engrossed within her own mind

You left with a premeditated cruel goodbye


But I never said a single word

Instead I decided to let you go

To stop you meant to conform to your ideals

And to that I’ll say with no regret

I’m better off on my own.
