One person can only tell another what they know to be true,
But no one can tell another how to think,
Nor can one tell another what to do with their lives.
Our life choices must come from within ourselves,
And our choices must always be our own.
We must stand our ground freely
And never backed against another’s wall.
If we define ourselves by other’s expectations,
If we define our dreams by other’s goals,
Then we lose ourselves to become hollow shells,
And our life’s journey will never be our own.
We must be true to ourselves,
We must always be who we are,
And let no one ever define us.
