Don’t say one day
and you will find you arrive at a free day.
Listen not to naysayers for they
only want you to make the same mistakes as them to justify their failures:
giving up on dreams they couldn’t find the courage to fight for;
settling like dust on the pillars of convention.
Paint their mirror gazes black with your determination
so you never reflect the regret that bruised their egos.
