Don’t Run With Scissors

Don’t run with scissors,
they’ll cut you down,
shape you into someone else
till your truth is cut out.

Free expression,
for one, for all,
it’s what grows the self,
it’s what a flourishing society
—stands for.

Souls trading reason for ignorance
seek a dark age steeped in hell’s fire.
Let’s build a millennial renaissance,
freedom in the new age we desire.

Don’t run with scissors
that cut tomorrow into hate,
instead, fashion an enlightened future
before ours is a feudal fate.
