Why are we taught
To care about things
That simply don't matter?

The way we look,
The things we possess,
What we've done in the past.

Have we forgotten about our ideas,
Our beliefs,
Our thoughts,
Our feelings?

We are lured off the path
Of what makes us who we are.

We need to take action:

Individualize ourselves,
Live according to no one else,
Free our minds from the prisons they abide in.

We will remember what matters.

We will remember who we are.
