Depend Upon No One

What do I see?

I see,

So many young men and women dependent on others in order to get things done.

A generation of kids in need of permission slips in order to get after it.

A prescription script, do this, do that, do not do that, existence.

So… Show me,

Show me, the one who goes without being told, where.

Who does just because.

Who runs all out just for fun.

Who does not give a fuck.

Who is not afraid to look dumb.

The one who depends upon no one.
