What People Think

What People Think

Why do I consider , what people think
The invasion of thoughts , that cause me to drink

The judgment they render , to livings progress
Unjust to examine , and don't seem to bless

Not put on this Earth , to perceive what they see
The constant reminder , that won't set me free

Because my uniqueness , is rendered in time
And I am the words , not put to their rhyme

So look at me now , I'm accepting to find
They are a remembrance , soon leaving my mind
