ALTERNATIVES

Written by Emecheta Christian

I would rather do me and be free

Instead of mimicking your way and sway

I would rather live wild like a child

Instead of programming my mind like your kind

I would rather do good and be booed

Instead of being loved in a life of fraud

I would rather be single and sociable

Instead of being in a relationship sinking like a shipwreck

I would rather pray for better days

Instead of hating my life and drowning in regrets

I would rather scamper from danger

Instead of acting brave and earning an early grave

I would rather have less with a mind at rest

Instead of having it all with a chronic fear of an imminent fall.

Spread the love
