ANOTHER WAY … a poem

I always thought there was another way

Though I tried to do what I heard you say

Walk don’t run and be quiet please

Act like a lady and always be nice

Follow this year’s fashion and learn to conform.

Mind your manners and don’t complain

Life was meant to be difficult, don’t be vain

Thinking you deserve a different lot

Than all of the others you see each day

It’s best to learn to live life their way.

But why I asked is everyone so glum

What would be wrong with a little fun

What if we laughed and played as we worked

What if we said oh you believe that, funny I believe this.

If we’re honest and kind we’ll be ok

I always thought there was another way

A way that allows us all to just be

You to be you and me to be me

Side by side we would face each new day

I always thought there was another way.
