Just laugh

By
Am I the keeper of things I don't want?
Or I just have a fate that isn't mine?
Maybe I should think about something for me
And leave the rest in the hands of the time:

Some things start, then some have to end
So try to pick what you think is the best
You don't have to listen to what you should do
You have all chances that anyone has.

Raise up your voice and speak what you want
Somehow you are free to do what you like
But just remember that with all you'll do
The consequences can come in a strike.

Don't try being more than who you really are
The world doesn't need anyone to be fake
Just try to see that when we go too far
Many times some wrong steps will be made.

Stop screaming like you can't ever be heard
Maybe some day all your friends will be deaf
Listen what a good friend would like to say:
You have to Live, Love, Learn and just... just Laugh...
