Backward Smile

A Chapter by Abdul Batin Osman Bey
"

You be you and I'll be me

"

I don’t believe in capitalism or Santa Clause

I don’t believe in America or nationalism

I don’t believe in races or cavemen

I don’t believe in militaries or murder

 

Many people do

I wouldn’t take that right from you

When I state my view

You just want to take it away from me

 

I don’t believe in gun control or war on drugs

I don’t believe in the Christian right or the Islamic Left

I don’t believe in history or technology

I don’t believe in corporations or organized religions

 

Many people do

I wouldn’t take that right from you

When I state my view

You just want to take it away from me

 

Maybe one day you’ll grow up

Allow me to be me

I never understood your definition freedom

Since you cling to caged conformity

Try stepping off your square

You might be shocked by what you find

 

Of course you could say that about me… ha, ha, ha

Love that you address both sides of the argument. Did you purposely not capitalize 'right' in Christian Right...or was that a typo. Don't agree with everything you say, but I respect you for proudly being you ~woohoo! : )
