A/N: Everyone's a hypocrite, folks. No one practices every single thing they preach. To call someone else a hypocrite without acknowledging that you are is, well, hypocritical. Everyone also conforms in some way. Even so-called "hipsters" are conformists. And yes, words pierce. That whole "names can't hurt you" concept is stupid. Humans are social and sensitive creatures. That is just our nature.

All three of these start with "I've come to admit" because they're connected, like a series.


I've come to admit
I am a hypocrite, just
like everyone else.


I've come to admit
I like to be accepted;
therefore, I conform.


I've come to admit
that though sticks and stones may break
bones, words also hurt.
