Society and I

By Yvon Lu   

You should be able to live your life
However you want, whenever you want
So, it is true
How some people can only hold you back?
I no longer can believe that
Other people are worth the trouble
My words are the only ones to listen to
It is a lie that
I am willing to be all I can in society
Although now of course
After all I've been through there could be no point
I cannot conclude that
The world is anything but empty
Still I can tell anyone that
I won't understand others
So it's untrue to say that
I have the ability to believe in them;
Other people's values,
Other people's wishes
The walls I have built,
It was crumbling, falling;
And I had thought that;
There is still hope

Now read backwards
