Yes






It is better to be ignorant, pure, the same
changes are permanent, evil, the worst
Locked in now, here, for tomorrow
Make one;
You're gone looking back at the first.

Not to kill- make me stronger
Not to live- make me weaker
 say it; repeat it.
Forget it: never; repress it: yes
The best advice always given to a youth
think before choosing, now is for right
never follow them: youth has aged
For all I know I was born tonight
OBEY- to make me common
REBEL- to make me human
 watch it; stalk it
shut it: never; blind it: yes
