Follow Your Own Drum
Harkin unto me all of you, I beseech you
Seek your own path. Breath life into you dreams
And ignore the ramblings of those afraid to step
Through the door of personal, spiritual, truths.
Give birth to ideas that will tear the very fabric of
Mankind’s soul. Do not fear the rhetoric of the mindless drone,
the soldier that takes orders every day from unseen masters
of past days.
Do not follow the beat of war drums, but instead follow
the beat of your own drum. O poor souls, stop the blindness within
and seek the rhythms of your inner self, Make it so loud from within and without the gods will shake to their knees. Be the great and free spirit that comes forth and
Hear the cry of freedom and take in how truly weak the mindless are.
Seek out others in a worldly view that does not
include a one way path that so many others have
Shed towards children of racial uniqueness
Be not so narrow to dismiss them as being less
Or inferior. Learn from one another and revel
In your uniqueness
Think about the ones who make so little and die
In slavery so that others may become richer from
The misery and suffering to turn
Around and sale to you those products.
Let that set in concrete with your conscience
And ponder about what things really cost you.
Was it worth that price?
Be creative in all aspects and never fear your own failures
Because from within those failures come the birth of
Your greatest achievements and those to follow
Grind in your mind the unimagined
Theories only known to yourself, and let it process
And grow bursting forth sprouting millions of branches to
Climb from and explore.
Thousands of years of archaic Academia and can try to beat you into Submission
But I say strike back with a thunderous roar.
find your own beliefs, follow them to your needs and
Reach a great internal divine plane.
Take the time to hear the voices of the radical thinkers
And allow their words to unlock what you so desire
To release but have yet to find the keys
That will let you blossom outward in a infinite
Hymnal of words yet unheard of and so
Brilliant they will linger in the minds of generations to come
See the passion in unconventional educators
And honor their unique perspective,
Share with them your thoughts
Be active and brilliant in you responses
Stop along the road and see the earths many wonders
Take in from her bosom the fruits she produces for you
To grow from. Revel in what she gives you and give back
By caring for her.
Give generously to what you deem a good and sound
Cause and not to the detriment of those minds
You encounter along the way.
I say again follow the beat of your own drum
And release your soul my friend
don’t stay trapped within a drone society
That has forgotten and fear the creative
Juices that flow from uniqueness.
