i beat my path

I will not follow you

though you trod the path before me

like a mule, let my hesitation and contemplation

Be misconstrued for obstinacy; for

therein lies my wealth

I shall own each gain and

feel each pain

and when it’s time to call

each bruise shall bear a flag

as I rise to own

my cherished crown deserved

rich in experience and battle-hardened

the path that I beat

the path that I know and

call my own

I refuse to follow you
