Rules

Will you dare to break the rules,

Defy what’s taught as right?

Will you risk what you have won,

For this new dream in sight?

 

Will you overcome convention,

And go against the norm?

Will you redefine the purpose,

For which you came to be born?

 

Will you run up to the edge,

And take a blind leap?

Unknowing of all consequence,

Be it regret, or reward to reap?

 

Or perhaps you’ll bide your time,

Climb silent to the top

Where you’ll wield a new power

No force could possibly stop

 

Then you’ll rewrite the rules

A victim to them no longer

Your words will bring acceptance

Make the outcast all the stronger

 

You’ll challenge what is right

Question what’s thought wrong

And those once lost in false shame

Will find they now belong
