I Ask Myself

Sit down and create!
Sit down and write!
I ask myself,
Who’s telling me?
Who chooses wrong or right?

Shut your mouth and listen!
Shut your mouth and hear!
I ask myself,
What will win:
My opinion or my fear?

Do just what I say!
Do just what I want!
I ask myself,
When my eyes died,
Replaced with grey and gaunt.

Who you are is bad!
Who you are is wrong!
I ask myself,
What are my flaws?
The list goes on and on.

Your intentions are not good!
Your intentions are not true!
I ask myself,
How can I change?
What do I have to do?

Listen to me!
Listen to us!
I ask myself,
If what they’re saying
Is jealousy or love?

Be true to yourself!
And everyone else!
I ask myself,
What comes first:
My commitments or my health?
