You can’t hold down a wild mind,
Or you’ll kill that person inside.
You can’t move toward your vision
And just haul them along for the ride.
You can’t reach toward your own success
And bury that other’s dreams.
You can’t rise while they hide away
And call yourself a team.
Extinguish that fire,
And you’re bound to smell the smoke.
You can’t tape back together
What, all these years, you’ve broke.
