I've been told what to do

     I've been told what to do

 

I've been told what to do to be a better person

Or was it to be a better applicant

I've been told what to do to be more respectful

Or was it to be more obedient

I've been told what to do to succeed in life

Or was it to get into a school

I've been told what to do to have better character

Or was it to follow the rules

I've been told what to do to be nicer

Or was is to be liked more

I've been told what to do to be smarter

Or was it to get a better test score

I've been told what to do to be more faithful

Or was if to be a better church member

I’ve been told what to do to win

Or was it to surrender

I’ve been told how to live my life

Or was I told how to die

So now I’m not certain

About any aspect of life

Unless I’m telling myself what to do

It might just be a lie

This poem is about: 
Our world
