Doors 

People here will tell you things:

“You have to pay your dues.”

“It”s all about who you know.”

“It”s seniority so you have to wait, but then when you”re on top, it”s worth it.”

I”ve paid dues. I”ve known people. I”ve been at the top and bottom of seniority systems.

“Sometimes you have to do things you don”t like in order to do what you want.”

Why?

I”m saying, why would you do anything but what you actually want to do?

Why is that a rule?

That seems stupid to me and is hereby undone.
There is nothing under the sun that cannot be done today.
Yes, it is hereby undone, I say!
Because you can do what you do today.

There is no great(er) prize waiting after the next sunset. The reward is the day: Not what comes after it.

I truly should stop listening to other people
And listen to myself.
