My Life's Beat

Dear society,
Why do you set my limitations
Why do you tell me I can't
Why do you have specific expectations for me
Why must I dance at the beat of your drum
Why don't my thoughts matter
Dear society,
Who IN THE WORLD put you in charge of my life
You don't walk in my shoes
You don't fill my lungs with the air I breath
You never fed me, taught me, or even raised me
So why again must I dance to your beat
I am a man yet a son of God
So I won't dance to your beat but the 1
He and my heart makes

Written: 2009
