Day 69 – Why Oh Why

Leave a comment

Submissive child: why do you succumb to the order? The structure? The customs?

Do not do what you are told.

Question the rules.

No, there are no rules, haven’t you heard?

Stop conforming.

Reform your beliefs.

Your thoughts.

Your questions.

You want answers?

Go get them.

Submissive child: why do you wait for the dawn? The new era? The revolution?

The earth may move,

But you cannot control the sun

Nor the light

Nor the sound

Nor the philosophies

Though they may have once been profound

Dispute them

Refute them

For to them you are not bound

Submissive child: why do you fail to move? To speak? To listen?

Use your five senses, dear child.

No more falling into submission.
