--Miranda Lambert "New Strings"

Write what they say
It's only a day
To lose who you are
Behind that bar
Drink away the pain
Before you go insane
Write what they say
Give yourself away

Write what they say
In the grave you'll lay
You conformed to them
It's your biggest sin
Forgotten who you are
As you're staring at the stars
So write what they say
Give your soul away

Write what they say
Who cares anyway
It's all for a grade
Creativity is slaid
You did what the teacher said
Fought the words in your head
So write what they say
Give your mind away

Just write what they say

The author's comments:
I was tired of English teachers saying we had to write a specific way or about a specific topic. Poetry is all perception and one's thoughts. It doesn't flow if it is forced to.
