Impervious to Criticism: A Poem
Last time "approval" meant something to me
had to do with certain banking transactions
but I never go down on my religious knee
for anyone's approvals for my actions.
Couldn't care less how others judge my decisions
they can't play judges with full plate of their own
many times it would result with little collisions
with total strangers as well as those known.
Folks have hard time accepting your adulthood
so they treat you like a grownup would a child
then lesson is due things to be understood
and we can make it hard, or make it mild.
So many folks play some normative ass
preaching about appropriate and right
pretending to be of a higher class
seeing things as black or white.
Let's see them as amusing, goofy, naive, and fun
whenever they may try to play an upper hand
let's smile until all of their preaching is done
but never forgetting to be our best friend.
