Senior year, get ready.
Stretching (by Dr. Stephanie Eddleman)
She was taught to think within the box
Color inside the lines, do as she was told,
Obey the rules, don’t question authority
Don’t speak unless spoken to, be in subjection
Follow the straight and narrow, walk the line
Don’t make waves, don’t rock the boat
Pour oil on troubled waters, go with the flow
Keep the peace, don’t go against the grain
Don’t be at loggerheads or kick against the pricks
Get on the band wagon, join in the chorus
Sing the same tune, harmonize, chime in
And for a long time she did.
One day she woke up and shouldered and shoved
And pushed and expanded that box into a world.
