Something I Could Never Do


To take orders without question

Is to hand over your mind on a silver platter

Something I could never do

My mind just isn’t that small.

  • Comment from author about the poem: The inspiration for this came to me as I was watching a more recent war film. I could never take orders without question. Sometimes it really is hard to tell the good guys from the bad guys. Didnโ€™t they used to wear black and white hats to determine who was who? Letโ€™s go back back to simpler times๐Ÿคช

    I can guarantee that you take orders everyday without realising it. The trick is to recognise the stupid ones and avoid them haha. Great poem.

      Iโ€™ll acknowledge I take orders everyday,nobody goes through life without taking orders. But in life we often have the opportunity,even the right to question them. But when youโ€™re a member of the arm,navy,airforce ect,ect,you just say โ€œYes Sirโ€ and obey,or else. I think youโ€™ve missed the point of my message here. But thanks for the comment. Cheers๐ŸปโœŒ๏ธ

        No point not missed my friend. The point is to have courage in the face of adversity. That's what your poem says to me. It's awesome

          If only.....can be difficult for some at times.

        • FallenAngel1๐Ÿ•Š

          Difficult? How does oneโ€™s mind not be curious as to why? And the most two important questions,..who benefits and at whoโ€™s expense. Nope!! Iโ€™d definitely be court marshalled and dishonourably discharged. โ€œYour too much trouble kid,get outa hereโ€๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
