A to Z Poetry - Convictions


Thinking - David Restivo 





Convictions


Why would you choose
to go along like a sheep?
Instead of a wolf
and take an independent leap.
They said, you must.
But was it just,
As you look back at reality.
Who is the judge,
who gave you the nudge
to live conditionally?
You've never been one
to obey the rules.
You bend, you lean,
you turn around
to find that which is
out of bounds
and make it fit
to suit yourself.
Why would you go along?
It had never been asked,
when you were tasked
to take a stand, 
to be strong.
Why would you go along
rather than sing
an independent song?
