Sometimes

Sometimes just being one’s true self
means walking alone in the dark
seeing the backs of so called friends
when ya tell it like it really is
there’s always a high price to pay
in order to stay true to one’s self
far better to walk alone or perhaps
with just a friend or two
then to be surrounded by a chorus
of wheeling and dealing yes men
who only tell ye what ya want to hear
stab ya in the back every chance they get
far better to watch with a tear in your eye
the herd plunge to a collective death
then to blindly follow a false prophet
into the jaws of death thru the gates of hell
far better to lie in a lonely grave
unmarked and perhaps utterly forgotten
then to be remembered as just another
unfortunate victim who lost their life
by letting someone else do his thinking
