Guide

The herd passes me by

Shouting insults

They don’t know why they shout

Somebody else told them to do it

 

I cross my arms & stare in defiance

Shouting words they don’t understand

I know what I am saying

I say it because I choose to

 

Against the grain

Against the tide

Against the path

A turbulent ride

 

Against the grain

Against the tide

Against the path

I need no guide

 

The sheep stroll on by

Laughing & mocking

They don’t know why they mock

Someone else told them they should

 

I stand firm & simply return a smile

I mock them back through the smile I wear

I know why I do it

I told myself to do it

 

I need no guide

I’m not one of the crowd

I need no guide
