To rise above the negativity and judgements of others takes great courage and fortitude at times. It requires courage to stand up and speak out for what you believe in and not bow to the masses who claim they know more than you!
Here are the words to my poem / song Preacher Man!
My head's in a spin...you're doing me in
Preacher Man...how can I win?
You cut me down...though I fight to stand
Can't listen no more to your one track band
You trample upon what I strive to be
Tear at my core...the very heart of me
Take a close look...listen and learn
You've had your piece...now it's my turn
Recent demands left me gutted...confused
It seems to me there's no pleasing you
I pour out my soul...entire...whole
Stripped bare...out in the cold
You're merely a child...free and wild
Don't have all the answers...reflect for a while
Stop for a moment...hear what I say
So my words...may find through a way
Not everything comes in black and white
This news could surprise...possibly...might
May come back and haunt you in the dead of night
Causing a shock...awaking in fright
This poem does not reflect my current mood. However I wanted to express some of the emotions I feel when I come up against people who expect me to change to fit in to their cosy way of thinking.
