You are More Than a Phrase

We hear and then we know.

You hear of

Current events

Scandal

Love

Murder

All of these things and then we show

Our reactions

Our deprevation

Our desperation

Conformity.

We let our fear of peers flow.

 

Slang and jargon are no different

YOLO

Swag

Dude!

Home-skillet

We are led as sheep; deferent

You'll be cool

You'll make friends

You'll seem interesting

Lies.

We conform in all we do; ignorant

 

Life develops when we make the first move.

You are born

You are human

You are great

Be better.

You do have something to prove.

Be

Think

Do

More

Dazed and angry, this world you can soothe.

 

YOLO is an excuse, posed as a reason

Do it

Don't think

It's fun.

Stupid.

Those who say YOLO have seen their last season.

I did it

I tried

No one noticed

Unimportant.

Perform as a youth a teen form of treason

 

Do something real; important and good

Yell

Interact

Think

Write

Do anything you think a hero could

Beleive

Read

Perform

Amaze.

Do all that you can; be proud where you stood.
