So maybe you don’t understand,

But do you have to?

Do you try to?

Do you even want to?


Does every performance remind you

That my passion doesn’t satisfy you?

That I won’t make as much money as you?

That I won’t learn the same things as you?


I’m so drawn to this, it’s all I want,

Yet you turn away at the mere thought of it.

Why is it that you’ve been so close minded?

Why are you afraid to open your door of acceptance?


You slammed it and threw the key,

Ultimately shutting me out.

New doors have opened to others,

But I’m still in my room alone.


I cannot wait to escape,

To leave the discouragement and opinions.

My path will be much different than yours,

But just know that that doesn’t make it wrong.
