To Kill a Wild Mind

Standard

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.
