Society Talks | Don’t Listen

society, talks, poetry, writing, thewritethroughlife, don't listen, words, stop

Society talks

and it’s difficult not to hear

due to an innate intrusion of fear

of what might be

and if it’s ok

if we don’t listen

to what they say.

Society talks

but it’s often wrong…

its principles are oppressive,

its values not strong…

because its occupants are greedy

but that’s not me,

or at least I’m trying not to be.

Society talks

and it tells us to obey

a path that’s been arranged

for assured success today;

but why can’t they see

we have the ability

to establish our own destiny?

Society talks,

but try not to listen.

Believe in your potential

and you’ll see what they’re missing.

Embrace each

opportunity to be yourself

and establish a life that breeds internal wealth.
