I wonder

Cars on the ground
Go rushing on by
I can’t help but wonder
And ask the world why
When and Who
Where will you go?
What is their purpose?
Do they even know?
Every person talks in code
Every life walks a road
Choices decisions
Rules and laws
Expectations confuse us
And highlight our flaws
Don’t listen to them
They know not what they say
Remember forever
What I tell you today
Beautiful and different
Just being yourself
So don’t listen to the lies
Of everyone else

The cars go on driving
Keep rushing on by
I still sit and wonder
And ask the world why
Where will you go?
What will you do?
This poem’s a reminder
Of what we once knew
Don’t let opinions
Steal your joy
They play with your mind
As it was a toy
Choose choices yourself
There is no wrong answer
Be an artist, a singer
A writer a dancer
Be yourself
Be random, be fun
When it comes down to you
There’s only one

I need to put more of my recent stuff on here. Sometimes I don't think that my new stuff is as good, but I have about 120 poems that aren't on here right now.
