Being You

they said
be careful
don’t get hurt

you didn’t listen

they said
it’s too risky
you’ll be sorry

you didn’t listen

they said
things they didn’t even believe
to keep you close, keep you in place, “don’t leave”

you didn’t listen then
and you still won’t now

so let them say
what they will

and you keep being you

(D James)
