crickets

A Poem by Quill
"

not all ideas are to come to life

"
I have always believed each creature carries a unique postulation
As matters arise each being has a conception of the situation
Conceptions which can be voiced and adhered 
The instructions and beliefs of the folks are worthy of being heard
However not all proclamations should be accepted
I will be dammed when I'm expected to concur with anything opined
Life lived on the words of others grants no sustenance 
Such a bias falls short in logic
It seems most folks are more subjective than objective
Everyone wants everyone to live in accordance with their perception
Madness
It's no wonder conflict breeds quickly in the world
There is a crave for conformity to established beliefs
The ideology I feel is about the need to create
They seek the ability to influence others with words
It grants them a sense of accomplishment 
However such should not be the case without considering other's doctrine
Forcing values into others is indeed a selfish act
Conjured by an insecure mind
Guided by a fallible spirit
This all comes from a lack of empathy
No one holds the patience to observe from alternate sides
Such impatience grants confusion and hostility
We must learn to understand and respect the precepts of others
Only then can we shape our worlds accordingly 
All who insist on voicing without understanding will receive no compliance
Their words would simply be likened and degenerated to the sounds of crickets

How could anybody not?
Forced values, I think, at least to some extent, are part of every type of government or leadership.
That being said, I think you should consider changing the name of this piece. To carry that title, I feel that the crickets ought to be more central to the theme of your poem.
I would suggest something about conflict as a title.
