Better Off - Poem by John Hazon Palen

Gullible.Naive.New Sprout.
Am I all like that?
'You're better off, ' my friends shout.
Each step's full of doubt.

I'm just a human - being
someone who found love.
They say, 'What are you thinking? '
Poor verdicts they have.

They seemed condescending..
Telling me I'm weak.
But the minute we met came;
I'd let rules to break!

Yeah, I got my aim for stars.
Their remarks ain't ri ght.
I know in you there's spark.
These things they can't fight.

We've had enough of their words,
And thus we're on guard.
As for myself you did say,
'You're better your way.'

I was at war with my self,
But now I'm convinced:
Noisy but shallow rivers,
They don't know better.
