Don’t believe what the others say 
About how life should be lived
How games shouldn't be played
The rules have been written
By those who think they know
Perpetuating their sole viewpoint, 
Thanks to followers galore
7 billion people, and the opinion of a few
Claiming definitions for others
Using perspectives of the minuscule
7 billion hearts, there are 7 billion truths
And no size fits all
Not even one or two
One man’s meat could be another’s vodka tonic
Consuming his truth could leave you hungry or alcoholic
So next time you read
A List of Top Ten Things You Need
to marry, get a job, be loved or breed
Toss out that list because it’s futile
A stranger used his or her life
As the template for your demise
