Are you different in defiance

Defiance of a norm, pattern

Or expectations, of self and others

In scorn, in ideology, in indifference

A rebel of sorts

Standing away and apart from the crowd

Not a party to any “system”

Aggressive from the get go.

Are you different in compliance

Complying to the rules and expectations

Of friends, family and society

Yet not subdue self identity

Seeking the expression of the same

Within the boundaries predefined

Blending in but still standing out

Being the change within the “system”

Being assertive without being aggressive

The choice is always yours and the circumstances

Sometimes you are compliant and defiant too

Because life demands it.
