don’t listen to them.
after all, they’re miserable
living their lives trying
to please the status quo
while fretting over things
that never become.

don’t listen to them.
they just instill fear
into your heart,
sucking all the life
and desire to live
from countless masses.

don’t listen to them.
listen to that one voice
deep within your own soul.
you know, the one that
comes like a tiger
ready to pounce on its kill.

don’t listen to them.
they are not interested
in your happiness or peace.
listen to the ocean,
the wind across the prairie,
the music that they hate.

don’t listen to them.
they will drag you to the grave.
listen to your own God
and send them away.
they have no authority
over your desire.
