Question Don’t Just Memorize


You must learn this by heart my teachers used to say
For me, school life was just a lot of memorize and regurgitate
I guess they want us all to think and act the same way
Conformity – A society full of sheep
Easy to  manipulate
Go to school, get a job, start a family: the rules of life as we are taught
Instead, why don’t they ask what would make us happy?
Isn’t the number one goal in life to have inner peace and be happy?
I want a life that is colorful, full of soul, that sparks my creativity
I do not want to just pay bills and die with my music still in me
We must question the things we are taught to memorize
Think outside the box, challenge authority, push boundaries
Design a life that suits you
Leave a positive mark on the world
Write your own unique story.
