Keep Going

They want you to stop and mute
But you should scream and shout
You should sing and dance
Let them hear and see you
They will be amazed by who you are

They would try to pull you down
But you should rise above them
See a tomorrow that is beyond them
Make a difference and they will follow
And thank you tomorrow

They want you to stop writing
But you should keep going
Write till the pen runs out of ink
Fill in more ink and keep writing
They can’t avoid reading you for ever

They would say they don’t see you
They are blinded in their mind
But you should reach out to them
Till you are visible to them
Then they will embrace you
