you're off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So... get on your way!" - Dr. Seuss, "Oh! The Places You'll Go"

They'll listen.
Be meek,
They won't comprehend.
Stand your ground,
They won't break you down.
Shout it out,
They'll lose their doubt.

Stay true to yourself, remain legit,
Don't take any of their shit.
It's your life, you control your own actions.
It's your journey, you choose the path you'll travel on.
Even if you think you've run out of time,
Even if you've trailed off of your line,
Keep on moving,
Just tilt your head back and sing.

To you they'll listen.
Be meek
And they won't comprehend.
Stand your ground,
They're unable to break you down.
Scream and shout it out,
They're beginning to lose their doubt.

Lost, are you now?
Well, how?
This path is your own.
What, you feel alone?
Well, you're not at fault.
You just moved on when they said "halt."
Your own path you've traveled,
Unmarked and ungraveled.
Don't sit and cry,
Don't ask yourself why
You've driven your own life
Rather than rode on with their strife.
Don't stoop to their level,
Don't drown yourself in their eyes ever so dreadful;
Tilt your head back and shout,
Let it be known, scream it out!

They'll stop to listen.
Be meek
And none will comprehend.
Stand your solid ground,
None will be able to break you down;
Scream it, shout it out!
More and more they're losing their doubt!

A fork in the route
You've come across.
A left will take you to a path with no knowledge about;
A right to a path with stones shined with gloss.
One path takes you along with the crowd,
The other a path less loud.
You stand in confusion at this choice
You open your mouth to speak but you can't even hear your own voice.

They'll be silent to listen;
Be meek
And no one will comprehend.
Stay solid, stand your ground,
Not a single one will even try to break you down!
Scream it now, shout it out loud!
Thinner and thinner will grow the doubt of the crowd!
