Thine Own Self

Rise up to my feet
They keep kicking me down
It’s never just one
Never will be
For some don’t have the guts
To fight alone
Forever always in the company
Of human depravity.

I won’t tow your line
And risk being hung out to dry
I used to follow your dictums
Just to appease social harmony
While never believing in myself
I figured out a long time back
Success is never about brutal honesty
Determination
Providing quality
It’s sucker punching
Dirty tricks
Infested within a pack mentality
Of superficiality
Dim intellectualism masquerading as tribalism
What’s popular isn’t always effective
As they scramble to silence the voices
Of disagreement poking their sacred bubble
For fear of being revealed as slaves to the game
Smothering anyone that dares to be different
As the invectives are poured out from
The mouths of alienation.

It’s sad that some have the potential
To change the landscape
But remain mute out of fear
The David against their Goliath
Labeled as someone they never were
Or will never be
So be a good boy and people please
Never being part of the clique
You desperate crave
While leaving out a huge section
Of the back story just to fit in
I would love to be a witness
To the guilt ravaging your insides
But I’d rather be outside the fray
If it means being true to thyself.

P-8/3/19
