Miss Manners

Always so prim and proper
Poised and elegant
Disturbed by machinations of a fascinated mind
Didn't anyone ever tell you to kick your shoes off and let your hair down sometimes?


Politically correct
Quiet and unashamed
Self-sacrificing indignation for the fight
You do know that through it all, you're still allower to live your own life


Little Miss Manners
Always standing on the sidelines
Never straying far from the right side of the tracks
You stand on ceremony even when you want to cry
You never take the chance to feel alive


Little Miss Manners
Hands always by your side
Never reaching for anything to keep your hopes in sight
You keep to what you've been taught despite how it feels inside
You never take the chance to feel alive


Little Miss Manners
Let the sanctimony lie
Come join me on the darker side
Let me show you how it feels to be alive
Take a risk and let me introduce you to the night


Take that prim and poise
And leave it in the cold
Let me show you how to change and grow
You don't have to always feel so hollow
And you can be Miss Manners again tomorrow

"You stand on ceremony even when you want to cry"

 

I love, love, love this line. 

I wish I could craft as fast as you, my little one is taking all my attention, but I'm okay with that. =)

Proper

Is overrated. I'd rather live.
Spoiler alert!...that'll never change. Mine will be 19 in 3 weeks and he still takes all my attention, but I'm okay with that ;)

Being appropriate

Is so ridiculously stifling, ain't it?
Rules are made to be broken anyway :D
