We are all given a pattern – one of life’s own design.
We are told that this piece goes with that piece and that piece goes over there.
They tell you that this is just the way it is.
Do what you’re told.
Follow the book to the word.
And then you’ll be just fine.
We are the sketch pens and the tacking pins of the world.
We make our own patterns and we demand more.
It’s time to change the way it is.
Forget what you’re told.
Rip up the rule book and write your own.
Be more than fine because you are.
Don’t break yourself to make it all fit,
This is your life and you’re cut out for it.
