Bamboozled No More! Wake Up


 

Understanding the source of potential
and inherited heartbreak
is a conscious choice embraced
by the many to define self
by accomplishments and life goals set
according to some generic timeline
with too many rules/expectations which were
evolved from questionable/untraceable sources.

The pressure to follow can be served
with seduction or brutality,
appearing in the damnedest places…
There are no options
If you are to survive …
You can’t not abdicate your right to be
