Maybe I’ll be unoriginal; maybe I’ll follow rules... - Keep your tail over the dashboard.
Maybe I’ll be unoriginal; maybe I’ll follow rules simply because I’m told to do so; maybe I’ll let society conform my idea of beauty and what is acceptable; maybe I’ll sit myself down in the middle of life’s Time’s Square and look up at the world spinning onward without me; maybe I’ll be apathetic; maybe I just won’t think anymore. As simply an individual, every person reading this should be appalled by that last sentence, throwing this essay away, even. As the transcendentalist writer Emerson states “nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of our own mind” and therefore, nothing can be more important than one’s own individuality, freedom of thoughts, and accepting oneself.
