why think you can influence me?
whence comes your interest in my activity?
And the nerve to take offence
when i won’t accept your beligerence!
what is missing within you
you think that i can fill?
do i tell you what to do?
guide, direct, push, demand?
if i a slacker be
your words will not that repair
for what is missing inside me
sits and at me stares
don’t push on me with demanding airs
rather invite me in with love and care
