words are bells
let them ring!

Each day/they say "you are different /and may never fit in"
Who wants to?This cage is thin as time.Render unto Caesar
then escape after hours/your imagination calls and you have powers
to evoke and create that defy authority and controls.
Smile during hours/honor all obligations.Be a dervish dancer with magickal powers
once you walk out of the cage,let your smile guide the way
you know you cannot stay where inertia rules the day.
seek fellow company/companions on the way/so myths of aloneness and anomie
will not limit nor control ye.There is always more to say
Seek more spaces where you can play-so pleasant dreams can color your scene
and you can continue to create.This world is yours long before work-
and afterwards as well.Reclaim all those stories/legends/songs and poems you can tell
and when they look at you and ask-"why are you so happy?"
Just smile-dream your way through every daily labyrinth
Avoid all Minotaurs after hours-you liberate yourself!
