Independent Love

Love respects and honours
It understands and cares
It steps back and offers freedom
And extends a hand of care

It listens with an open heart
Does not defend or shout
Or control or cling in any way
Nor forget what you’re about

Rejoicing in spontaneity
If feeds on openness
Encouraging free thinkers
To share a life more blessed

It turns its back on toxins
That paralyse and crush
For love seeks not approval
Nor through mental edits rush

In strength it raises individuals
Uplifts autonomy
To nurture self-reliance
With strong bonds so lovingly

For love thrives on independence
As dependent it might be
To instil rich equilibriums
That breed longevity

 

Conformity’s Mist

Oh the world so likes those who comply
Who say and do the right thing
Those who happily tow the party line
Or read from the same song sheet to sing

She promotes people who knuckle under
Or sit quietly in long listless rows
Cherishing those who happily sign on the line
Without threat to equilibrium pose

And those who accept red tape and bureaucracy
Are often exalted high over the rest
For the fact that they ask no questions
Gives them an A* in conforming at best

But the question that is mostly apparent
Is whether it’s really better this way?
Is it right that we’re encouraged to follow the crowd?
Institutionalised to stop us going astray?

Astray on a quest of pure knowledge
To a place where choices exit
Where we can think or debate or inquire once again
And live without conformity’s mist.
