I reject your rules.

i reject all your rules

i reject your shoulds, your structure, your guilt,

i reject all the things that made me feel like I wasn’t ‘doing life right’.

my freedom came when I realized that success is not what i thought it was.

prestige is hollow.

success isn’t praise or fame,

it is peace and space and joy.

so i reject all your rules.

i reject all your steps to happiness.

i reject your shoulds, your fake smiles, your martyrdom,

i reject the rat race.

i reject it all.

i have depleted myself for too long.

and i will not play your game anymore.
